Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian Marshall, O.D.(Marshall Family Eye Care)
Description: This is a handy, comprehensive guide to the cornea.
Purpose: It compresses a vast amount of knowledge about the cornea into a compact and easy-to-read book.
Audience: The book is intended for eye care practitioners, residents, and students. Due to the level at which this book is written, however, practitioners and residents will get the most out of it. The 15 chapters are authored by well-respected clinicians, many with academic affiliations.
Features: After a brief chapter on anatomy and physiology, the majority of this book is devoted to the many diseases, disorders, and conditions that affect the cornea. Contemporary chapters on ancillary diagnostic equipment and corneal surgeries are also nicely incorporated. Numerous high-quality color photographs, diagrams, and tables illustrate concepts and help improve comprehension. However, the paper is thin and some bleed-through is evident.
Assessment: This is a concise, practical handbook on the cornea. The book flows very well with few redundancies. Although not all-inclusive, it contains comprehensive information on the conditions that practitioners will see on a regular basis. The placement of the various tables and color photographs make learning easy and increase reader comprehension. The breadth of topics, color photographs, and format make this a clinically friendly tool for all eye care providers and residents.
