From the reviews:

"This book offers a valuable beginners’ guide to teleophthalmology. … Each chapter begins with a useful summary that is then expanded upon in the main text. … Illustrations, graphs, and tables also add to the text, as do a number of appendices. It is easy to read as it seems to be aimed at a reader who is new to teleophthalmic principles and care. … I think it is a useful resource into the developing world of teleophthalmology." (Olga Brochner, Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 2007)

"This book provides an excellent and detailed introduction to ocular telemedicine and telehealth. … Teleophthalmoogy … provides a brief overview and strong introduction. The book will be of interest for those who are curious about what teleophthalmology involves and for those who want a brief presentation of the state of the art." (Jerry D. Cavallerano and Lloyd Paul Aiello, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimantal Ophthalmology, Vol. 247, 2009)
