The latest annual volume of a series entitled Current Topics in Eye Research appeared recently. Jose A. Zadunaisky and Hugh Davson are the editors of the series, and each volume contains four to six chapters about selected topics written by experts in the field. The chapters are reviews that primarily, but not exclusively, concentrate on the author's work and are aimed at the basic scientist in the same or a related field.
