Reviews

From the book reviews:

““Ocular Blood Flow’ provides a deep, comprehensive coverage of the state of the art on this intriguing field of research. … Written in a direct, concise language, this textbook combines, in a one-piece, easy-to-carry volume, the type of information that is usually found scattered in a number of separate books. … In conclusion, if the reader … wants to have an easy-to-read, detailed, and up-to-date insight into this interesting field of research, this is the book to get.” (Luís Abegão Pinto, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 253, March, 2015)

“This is a thorough review of ocular blood flow, covering the anatomy, measurement methods, physiology, and clinical correlations with various aspects of ischemic processes in the eye. … It appears to be intended primarily for basic science researchers in the field of ocular blood flow. … This book provides basic scientists with a thorough review of the anatomy, physiology, and measurement tools to explore the field.” (Christopher B. Chambers, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
