The preface by the author is identical with that of the first edition in 1979, and the same can be said of most of the book: similar chapters, text, tables, and illustrations. Although stated to be for the teaching of residents, the material is comprehensive with excellent clinical photographs, histopathology and electron microscopy, extensive tables, and bibliography. The few oversimplified drawings do not resemble the clinical appearance. The author gives much credit to his associate, Fred M. Wilson II, MD.
Unless one has the first edition, purchase of this "second edition" would have much value as a reference for diseases of the cornea.
