This book again collects the most important articles of the preceding year and evaluates them critically, indicating the highlights and defects of many contributions. Each chapter is introduced by a short article written by an expert in the subspecialty field. Some of these contributions are excellent summaries of the present state of the art on a specific small topic, eg, the article by Fred M. Wilson II, MD, on conjunctival biopsies for sarcoidosis, which precedes the chapter on the conjunctiva, and the article on chloroquine retinopathy by Gerald A. Fishman, MD, which precedes the chapter on the retina. Another excellent introduction is the one written by Jonathan D. Trobe, MD, on automated perimetry, which precedes the chapter on neuro-ophthalmology. The article on refractive keratoplasty by Donald J. Doughman, MD, which precedes the chapter on the cornea and sclera, is worth the price of the book.
