From the reviews:

"This hardback book is part of an eight-volume subspecialty series called Essentials in Ophthalmology. … The intention is to expedite the transfer of new information into a textbook form, and hence clinical practice. … This text has 11 chapters, generally quite easy reading, with a logical layout. … Each chapter is written by world experts on the particular topic, and is well referenced. … Overall, I found this an extremely valuable read … ."
