Textbook of Ophthalmology is a remarkable achievement by the Agarwals and their coeditors. The text falls in the genre of the Duke-Elder series, System of Ophthalmology, and Albert and Jakobiec's Principles and Practice of Ophthalmology. The target audience is described as "all those concerned with the science of ophthalmology," and the textbook is meant to include "the whole concept of ophthalmology." However, major topics are overlooked or sparsely treated.
