"Experience with eye procedures is an important aspect of the practice of anesthesia in general. This book succinctly provides, in an easy to read and carry format, that knowledge. An international group of chapter authors, including some with outstanding credentials, has been assembled to provide a broad perspective of the subject. This is a convenient handbook can easily be covered, carried, and mastered during trainees' short rotations on the ophthalmic anesthesia service, and it can serve as a quick reference for others caring for eye patients." - Doody's Review
