About Retina Atlas

Retina Atlas serves as an essential resource for every ophthalmologist, providing a comprehensive visual guide to the diagnosis and management of retinal diseases. Compiled using a collection of ultrawide-field retinal imaging from Eidon, Optos, and supplemented with OCT, this atlas offers a detailed understanding of retinal pathology. Grewal Eye Institute, being a tertiary care center with a separate retina department, boasts a significant collection of common and rare diseases at various stages of life.

This book isn’t just for seasoned professionals; it’s also a gateway for medical students, residents, and postgraduates to explore the fascinating world of retinal disorders. For those who might not encounter every spectrum of disease during their training, the Retina Atlas offers a window into this captivating realm.

Every opportunity to enhance our visuals has been seized, including the inclusion of newer and rarer entities. Moreover, we’ve incorporated images from ultrawide-field fundus imaging systems (Optos), adding a whole new dimension to our exploration. The book is designed with a greater emphasis on pictures, allowing for a quick and detailed review of fundus pathologies. It encapsulates the experiences of distinguished authors, spanning up to forty years for senior authors.

On the launch of the atlas, Dr. SPS Grewal, CEO of Grewal Eye Institute, Chandigarh, India, added, “The overwhelming response to the first edition has been testimony to the quality of the images and the format of the book. The focus of the book has been to present and highlight the clinical findings on fundus examination, their description, variations, and correlation to the disease. Purposefully, we left out the nitty-gritty of differential diagnoses and treatment, opting instead to delve deep into the clinical landscape to focus on clinical findings and the presentation of a disease. Since our first dive into retinal wonders, we’ve encountered a treasure trove of new cases and amassed a wealth of even better images. So, here’s to hoping that our second edition continues to captivate and educate, serving as an indispensable tool for anyone with a passion for retinal imaging. My sincere thanks to my co-authors and the incredible team at Grewal Eye Institute for their unwavering support in bringing this edition to life.”

Dr. Manpreet Brar added, “Our motivation for creating the 2nd edition of Retina Atlas was to share the extensive knowledge we’ve gathered over the years at the Retina Clinic of GEI about retinal diseases. I am deeply grateful to all our patients for trusting us with their treatment, and I also want to thank the incredible team at GEI and Dr. SPS Grewal for their unwavering support and motivation. Their dedication and collaboration have been key to making this edition possible, and I’m excited to continue our journey in advancing retinal care together.”

Dr. MR Dogra also shared his views about the Retina Atlas, saying, “Grewal Eye Institute offers state-of-the-art vitreo-retinal and uveitis services. Skill transfer and imparting quality education at all levels are our goals. Retina Atlas is one significant effort in that direction. Compiling this atlas helped us to think more clearly about how to put our own documentation of patients together in a concise manner. We have put our heart and soul into this project and followed our passion. Bringing out this atlas is one great deed of the Grewal Eye Institute that will leave its mark and signature in the publishing world.”
