This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. A concise textbook of basic science for trainees and residents in ophthalmology.
Thorough updating of the sections on pathology, immunology, pharmacology and immunology.
Revision of all other chapters.
More colour illustrations.
The only all-embracing textbook of basic science suitable for trainee ophthalmologists – other books concentrate on the individual areas such as anatomy.
Attractive page design with clear, colour diagrams and text boxes make this a much more accessible book to learn from than many postgraduate textbooks.
