This reference is relevant for the beginning, intermediate and advanced surgeon and clinician. It will also serve as an invaluable reference for the unusual and challenging cases that one may encounter pre-, intra- and postoperatively." -- Reviewed by Asim Piracha, MD for Ocular Surgery News (Sept. 2010)
