This title of this book suggests a more comprehensive text than is actually delivered. The emphasis of this short textbook is on clinical findings from the Confo Scan 2, manufactured in Italy by the Nidek Co, Ltd. There is a brief discussion of scanning spot confocal microscopy in the introductory chapter, but the book is principally devoted to the findings of scanning-slit confocal microscopy by these authors using this particular device. The chapters are well organized and adequately referenced, after the first chapter. There is, however, no discussion about the use of confocal microscopy in the detection or management of corneal infectious diseases. This may reflect the experiences of the authors.
