This book is designed to be concise with a consistent format so that the clinician can focus on a specific area. This edition has had major modifications and embraces evidence-based medicine. The format includes the CPT codes for billing purposes, short description of the condition, etiology/incidence, course/prognosis, laboratory findings, differential diagnosis; prophylaxis, treatment (local and systemic, surgical or other), miscellaneous (names and addresses of support groups) and key references.

"The book is exhaustive and covers many rare disorders in detail. The division of this book into many small chapters makes it convenient to find specific topics." -- American Journal of Ophthalmology, April 2001
