Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The largest textbook ever published on this topic and a comprehensive reference source on the diagnosis and management of all types of ocular cancers." - Cole Eye Institute Ophthalmology Update, April 2007

"This outstanding book addresses not only new understanding of basic principles in the etiology of cancer but also the newest clinical diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for all ocular and orbital malignancies. The wide range of authors represented in the book provides a broad international perspective on the management of ophthalmic disease. Short chapters are extremely detailed and well referenced with up-to-date and appropriate evidence based articles. The illustrations, diagrams, and color photographs are of the highest quality and provide clear elucidation of the text. The book is intended for any physician involved in the care of patients with ocular or orbital malignances." - Joan O'Brien, Professor of Ophthalmology, University of California, San Francisco

"Clinical Ophthalmic Oncology presents a wealth of information regarding a rapidly advancing ophthalmic specialty. Scientific perspective is strengthened by the expertise of five editors and 124 contributing authors from 18 countries. Ophthalmologists in all subspecialties will find valuable information in Clinical Ophthalmic Oncology. The book is comprehensive in scope, clear in presentation and strengthened by appropriate tables and figures. In addition, the enclosed CD provides all figures in a format suitable for viewing, export and PowerPoint presentation. The authors are to be commended for this timely and well-prepared text." - B R Straatsma, British Journal of Ophthalmology, March 2008

"Clinical Ophthalmic Oncology provides up-to-date information on the entire spectrum of intraocular as well as ocular adnexal tumours and simulating conditions. The text is easy to read and well illustrated. The book is published in colour, which adds greatly to its usefulness as a reference source and guide in the clinic. It also comes with a CD incorporating some of the illustrations and figures in a downloadable format. An extremely valuable resource for ocular oncologists as well as general ophthalmologists who have an interest in the field, it should also be a helpful resource for other physicians involved in the care of the eye tumour patients." - Eye Review, 2008
