"This is a straightforward atlas. It does not attempt to provide much more than a wealth of excellent illustrations and so may need to be used in conjunction with a conventional text book by some readers. The coverage is comprehensive and the quality is excellent. It should prove invaluable to all ophthalmologists and be especially welcomed by external eye specialists involved in postgraduate teaching. It seems very good value at £135." BMA Awards 2007
