"Ocular Disease" - a newly introduced companion volume to the classic Adler's "Physiology of the Eye" - correlates basic science and clinical management to describe the how and why of eye disease processes and the related best management protocols. Editors Leonard A. Levin and Daniel M. Albert - two of the world's leading ophthalmic clinician-scientists - have recruited as contributors the most expert and experienced authorities available in each of the major areas of ophthalmic disease specific to ophthalmology: retina, cornea, cataract, glaucoma, uveitis, and more. The concise chapter structure features liberal use of color - with 330 full-color line artworks, call-out boxes, summaries, and schematics for easy navigation and understanding. In print and online, this comprehensive resource provides you with a better and more practical understanding of the science behind eye disease and its relation to treatment.


"Ocular Disease: Mechanisms and Management is invaluable in its emphasis on discussions of the pathophysiology of ocular disease. It provides an excellent and up-to-date overview of ophthalmic pathophysiology and bridges the gap between the basic science and the clinical practice of ophthalmology. The textbook is an invaluable resource for any ophthalmologist." "JAMA", July 6, 2011-Vol 306, No. 1 "Do you look up PubMed on your lunch break to learn more about a patient you just saw? Are you a curious type, wanting to learn more than you really need to know to just get by? If so, then "Ocular Disease: Mechanisms and Management" is the book for you. ...I am going to keep this book in my clinic. When I'm scratching my head about something I don't understand, I'll pull it down and review it." --Reviewed by Jim Hays, MD for "Ocular Surgery News (Sept. 2010)"
