Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Alastair Denniston and Philip Murray have followed up the first edition of the Oxford Handbook of Ophthalmology with an excellent, very thorough handbook that is useful for ophthalmologists at any stage in their training or career...Unique to this more sophisticated handbook are the various chapters that are not found in other handbooks, including evidence-based ophthalmology..., eponymous syndromes, web resources for ophthalmologists, refractive ophthalmology (with a thorough table of all of the surgical regractive procedures available) and perioperative management...I can only hope that an American edition will soon follow to provide us with the same depth of insight that this version serves its UK physicians with."--Reviewed by Elizabeth Yeu, Houston, Texas in the American Journal of Ophthalmology
