"This book covers every major area in ophthalmology by anatomic location (e.g., cornea, retina, neuro-ophthalmology). For many of the conditions, there is a unique "management box" that highlights key points for management of disorders that is very helpful. The many color pictures also complement the text well."-Shira Simon, MD, MBA(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine) Doody Review: 88/100
