Current Concepts in Ophthalmology is a series of reviews averaging 10 to 20 pages per review on clinical and paraclinical subjects. The book contains 26 chapters, each written on the favorite subject of 26 different authors who, at the time of writing, were all members of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa. There is no recognizable theme, other than the gathering together of reviews of interest to the members of this Department of Ophthalmology. Various aspects of corneal problems, glaucoma, malignant melanoma, a long section on echography, and an interesting potpourri of other subjects are contained. The diversity of subjects is impressive. While the current forefront in clinical ophthalmological developments is not comprehensively studied, this book contains reviews on many interesting clinical developments.
The book is easy to read and has excellent, large, helpful illustrations. The shortness of the chapters invites one to pick up the book
