Having recently reviewed the text in hardcover, the CD-ROM version was an interesting comparison. Both represent the updated edition of what has become one of the standard comprehensive texts in cornea, external disease, and refractive surgery. The installation onto Windows 95 took less than 1 minute. The CD uses a standardized search program "Teton Viewer" that is crossed shared among other texts. This allows the user, already familiar with this program, to feel immediately at home. I was not. The included instructional manual is brief, leaving most of the learning to either the help menu or the more common "trial and error." After about 1 hour, I was fairly comfortable.
