The second edition of this book is a creditable accomplishment brought together by the editors as well as the contributors who helped write the 41 chapters.

The book begins with normal corneal anatomy and physiology. In less than 35 pages, the authors lucidly describe the optical functions of the cornea and highlight the significance of these principles in clinical practice.

Discussion of examination of the cornea includes slitlamp microscopy of the cornea, specialized microscopy, and corneal topography. The dynamics of slitlamp microscopy have been explained in a detailed and simplistic manner, achieving the book's purpose of educating aspiring ophthalmology students and residents-in-training.
