Reviews

Reviews of the first edition:

"This is a timely book on the newest frontier of corneal-external eye disease: the collective emergence of ocular surface disorders as cumulative, critical causes of treatable blinding conditions¿ All the essentials are there: dry eye, blepharitis, dystrophies, etc. but there is no "fluff". The diagrams are a delight¿ But, if there is one "best" part of this book, it is the section(s) on stem cell deficiencies, their causes, and treatment. Currently there is nowhere else to go in the textbook arena to find this import information¿ In that sense, it is truly a "must for every shelf." -Cornea

"This is a timely book on the newest frontier of corneal-external eye disease … . the authors have produced and polished the gem of written clarity. … The diagrams are a delight. … Currently there is nowhere else to go in the textbook arena to find this important information. And, the authors have produced in one place, all we currently know. In that sense, it is truly a ‘must for every shelf’. … a new classic just may have been born." (H. Dwight Cavanagh, Cornea, Vol. 21 (6), 2002)

"In recent years, we have seen the development of new surgical strategies for the treatment of chronic ocular surface disease … . This book gives clear diagnostic criteria for these conditions and describes the surgical techniques to treat them. … The book is recommended for the cornea specialist as well as the general ophthalmologist treating these chronic and often difficult conditions." (Holger Baatz, Ophthalmologica, Vol. 217 (1), 2003)

"The editors and contributors are leading authorities, and attempt to provide an overview of our current understanding of the cells that replenish the ocular surface … . They describe the latest techniques being explored in the surgical management of ocular surface disorders, endeavouring to stimulate new ideas for the future. For the general ophthalmologist … this book offers an excellent up-to-date single-source of the latest developments in this area of anterior segment surgery … ." (Saaeha Rauz, Eye News, Vol. 9 (4), 2003)
