Editorial Reviews

"This serves to focus our attention on the necessity of optimal treatment, as many disability-adjusted life years can be avoided by good decision-making and prompt treatment. . This book is intended for ophthalmology residents and fellows and any ophthalmologist who is on call and is likely to be asked to treat ocular trauma." (Leigh Spielberg, EuroTimes, September, 2017)
