"In this manual, Collin (a talented writer and an expert Ophthalmologist) weaves an expert narrative detailing the most common surgical eye procedures being performed today. Accordingly, this text proves to be required reading for all practitioners in the field -- noted for its crisp analysis and ordered format. (...) Moreover Collin brings much new information to the third edition of his treatise, including a fine segment on eyelid tumor management (an aspect of the discipline that is quite delicate and required the utmost care on the part of the physician). (...) Readers will find Systematic sharply written and easy to navigate, with logical use of illustrations meant to illuminate key procedural points of the text. If Ophthalmologists were to chose a single office reference to help escort them through surgically based procedures, they wouldn't go wrong by investing in this selection."
