Published Reviews

    "Ocular Disease: Mechanisms and Management is invaluable in its emphasis on discussions of the pathophysiology of ocular disease. It provides an excellent and up-to-date overview of ophthalmic pathophysiology and bridges the gap between the basic science and the clinical practice of ophthalmology. The textbook is an invaluable resource for any ophthalmologist." JAMA, July 6, 2011-Vol 306, No. 1

    "Do you look up PubMed on your lunch break to learn more about a patient you just saw? Are you a curious type, wanting to learn more than you really need to know to just get by? If so, then Ocular Disease: Mechanisms and Management is the book for you. ...I am going to keep this book in my clinic. When I'm scratching my head about something I don't understand, I'll pull it down and review it." --Reviewed by Jim Hays, MD for Ocular Surgery News (Sept. 2010)
