In 14 chapters, Drs Brown and Bron cover the lens: from the embryonic stages of development to the hypermature cataract.
This book should have a wide range of appeal. It addresses the development, anatomy, structure, accommodation, presbyopia, biology of the lens and cataract, and the effects of cataracts on vision. Consequently, the clinician, the basic researcher, anatomy scholars, and residents should find this book to be helpful and practical. The diagrams are clear and useful. The illustrations and photographs, many of which are in color, are excellent.
