For anyone looking for a thorough, clear-cut survey of eye anatomy and physiology, I highly recommend Ocular Anatomy and Physiology, by Al Lens, Tammy Langley, Sheila Coyne Nemeth, and Carolyn Shea. This book provides, in a mere 147 pages a general overview of all aspects of a normal 'eye'. The fifteen chapters in this book run the gamut from "Embryology and Eye Development" to "Refractive Errors and Conditions." Also included are chapters on the various structures of the eye, and eye physiology such as a detailed explanation of the visual pathway.

Each chapter in this book begins with a listing of the key points to be covered in each chapter. And within each chapter, key topics and categories are presented in bold type. Detailed diagrams are also included that help to explain and illustrate the location of various features of the eye's anatomy. This book is also noted by the numerous illustrations and charts which expound upon the material being covered in the text.

This book serves a number of purposes. It serves as an excellent, basic reference for clinicians. It serves as an essential study guide for students in all aspects of the Eyecare field. It will also aid those studying for various ophthalmic certification exams. In short, it serves as an outstanding introduction to ocular anatomy and physiology - written in a nontechnical, but nonetheless authoritative manner. It will also be of interest to those patients who wish to acquire an understanding of the anatomy and function of the eye so that they can better understand their particular condition.
