Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Albert S. Jun, MD, PhD (Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center)
Description: This second edition text highlights developments in the rapidly changing fields of immunology, genetics, wound healing, and biochemistry.
Purpose: Like the first edition of this work, this second edition attempts to present basic sciences related to ophthalmology in a comprehensive and concise format.
Audience: The stated audience includes medical students, ophthalmology residents, and even established practitioners seeking a review of basic sciences in their specialty.
Features: This is an overview of embryology, anatomy, histology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, pharmacology, pathology, and statistics all relevant to the understanding of ophthalmology. The sections on neuroanatomy and genetics are particularly well-covered. Information is introduced with multiple choice questions followed immediately by concise, well-written answers in paragraph format. Well-designed and appropriately-placed illustrations are included to facilitate understanding. The added topics of genetics, statistics, and neuroanatomy add much to this work and justify the publication of the second edition.
Assessment: This work is a potential asset to ophthalmologists at all levels of training, especially those preparing for board-type examinations. For this purpose, it clearly is more accessible than the commonly used alternative, Fundamentals and Principles of Ophthalmology, Section 2, Basic and Clinical Science Course (American Academy of Ophthalmology, 1998). This work is highly recommended to students and practitioners of ophthalmology who require a comprehensive, concise, and accessible review of basic sciences in this specialty.
