As highlighted on the book's cover, this is an "owner's manual for your eyes." The "Foreword" by Morton F. Goldberg, MD, FACS, aptly characterizes it as a book to fill consumers' growing demands for health information so they can be more knowledgeable and involved in their own care. The authors use succinct writing to explain both the healthy and diseased eye and have done an excellent job. Consumers will benefit immensely from The Eye Book.
