From reviews of previous editions:
"It is beautifully laid out and has excellent photographs and drawings - an excellent text for the intended audience - residents in ophthalmology." American Journal of Ophthalmology
"It is difficult to fault this excellent book. It has become a standard text for trainee ophthalmologists." British Journal of Ophthalmology
"Nothing has come close to superseding it in 10 years. If you only ever buy one textbook this is the one." Optician
Reviewers' comments and testimonials for the fifth edition
'It is fair to say that many practitioners use this book as their main reference text in practice. This edition is very professional in its presentation and content, and is more user-friendly than its predecessor.'
'It is a best seller and will remain so.'
'Superb illustrations which complement a formatted text which is not too detailed but which summarises all the important points related to each topic. This format is excellent for teaching junior ophthalmologists to develop a rational and reproducible approach to each condition standing them in good stead for examinations.'
'From a content standpoint the book does an excellent job in presenting clinical slides of many ocular pathologies and contains a great deal of information. I am content to say that this book would certainly be on my list!'
