 “It is current and well-referenced, with citations extending through 2007. Practical and erudite. Informative and authoritative. Sometimes intriguing. A good read made easy by remarkably impeccable editing, especially considering the speed with which it was produced for us. Kudos to Dr. Henderson and her associate editors. I recommend buying a copy for yourself and one for each of your surgical residents. I hope this will become a series, with regular updated editions.”   

— Robert C. Drews, MD, FACS, FRCophth, St. Louis, Ocular Surgery News

 "This is an excellent primer for both beginner and experienced cataract surgeons. It is intended as a resource for those learning cataract surgery, which the book correctly points out is 'aruduous and arguably the most difficult surgery to learn during residency,' and then to remain a reference for the surgeon once competence has been achieved. It absolutely meets these worthy goals. . . The authors, who are the course instructors, are not only expert cataract surgeons, but also are known to be excellent instructors of cataract surgery. This gives the book a highly credible voice and assures that it never loses sight of its audience: the beginner cataract surgeon. . . I highly recommend this as an outstanding adjunct to any surgical curriculum."
