"Dr. Agarwal has maintained the rich heritage of the hallmark of Dr. Gass’ book, with great attention to clinical detail. She combines the best of Dr. Gass’ previous works with new cases, images, and illustrations. She reached out throughout the world for contributions from colleagues for unique cases and images that provide the clinician with an international perspective... If the clinician needs a source to help make tentative or confirmed diagnoses of common and atypical retinal conditions, this is the go-to book." Optometry and Vision Science, Vol. 90, No. 10
"The scope of the atlas is remarkable, covering everything from diseases seen in daily practice to those we’ve never heard of, like Bothnia dystrophy and Leigh syndrome. Gass’ Atlas is most appropriate for highly ambitious residents, retina fellows and specialists, and general ophthalmologists who are looking for an excellent reference book with a proud lineage and impeccable reputation." By ESCRS EuroTimes (European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery), Apr 2015
"Through her tireless efforts, Dr Agarwal, has updated this great book while maintaining the voice of Dr Gass in its pages. The fifth edition of the Gass Atlas is sure to continue its tradition of a trusted source to aid in the diagnosis and care of patients." British Journal of Ophthalmology, June 2012
"This updated comprehensive atlas is justly considered to be the bible of macular diseases affecting the retinal periphery, in addition to optic nerve head diseases that mimic macular diseases...The text is accompanied by superb clinical, schematic, and histologic as well as imaging photographs...It is hoped tha the project of updating and expanding this book will be continued for the benefit of th entire ophthalmic community and its patients worldwide."
