Doody's Rating: * * * * *This is the most complete text available on the subject of the cornea. This is an update of the 1997 publication initially lauded by Archives of Ophthalmology as one of the One Hundred Important Ophthalmology Books of the 20th Century. The text is nicely separated into two volumes. The first volume (1,395 pages) explores the fundamentals, diagnosis, and management of cornea disease, while the second volume (691 pages) examines surgery of the cornea and the conjunctiva. Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of this classic work is the most comprehensive reference on diagnosis and treatment of corneal diseases. Its clear and easily readable style, reasonable price, and recent publication make it an attractive book for the general ophthalmologist or subspecialist wanting the most up-to-date text.Weighted Numerical Score: 100 The chapters clearly present a comprehensive, logical, and didactic approach to the subject matter. The illustrations in the volumes are of a very high quality, with clinical and histopathological images in full color. I recommend "Cornea" since it provides a comprehensive, integrated compendium of knowledge on the basic science and clinical aspects of the cornea. "Ophthalmic Research, Journal for Research in Experimental and Clinical Ophthalmology, November-December 2005" This set scores a 2.6 out of a possible 3 in "Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences," ranking as a "key title.""SciTech Book News, September 2005"Reseña del editor:
Here's the New Edition of the reference lauded by "Archives of Ophthalmology" as one of the One Hundred Important Ophthalmology Books of the 20th Century! Three internationally renowned editors and over 250 distinguished contributors explore all of the important discoveries and advances that are changing the practice of ophthalmology. They discuss the genetic, molecular biologic, biochemical and immunological findings that are leading to a better understanding of corneal dystrophies, allergic kerato-conjunctivitis, dry eye conditions, and many other corneal and external eye diseases. Their in-depth, clinically focused coverage describes today's new approaches to treating ocular surface diseases and details the dramatic changes occurring in the field of refractive surgery. An accompanying DVD features all of the more than 2,300 superb illustrations from the book, downloadable for electronic presentations, as well as video clips, narrated by the authors, that demonstrate important diagnostic and surgical procedures.
