The first two editions of Diseases of the Cornea by Merrill and Grayson were widely acclaimed as the classic medical corneal texts of their day. The third edition by Arffa continues to provide the reader with a comprehensive, clear, and concise text of medical corneal disease.
The text has 30 chapters with 584 illustrations, including 210 in color. Each chapter is preceded by an outline that provides the reader with an excellent overview of the information that can be found in that chapter. An exhaustive list of references follows each chapter, containing both historic and recent citations. Tables are generously provided to highlight information and to make it more accessible to the reader. Both the color and black-and-white photographs of common and rare diseases of the cornea and adnexa are very clear and enhance the text. Drawings are used judiciously to highlight important characteristics of the clinical photographs without distracting
