"This is a classic, must-have book for residents to general ophthalmologists. This edition provides valuable updates on current treatments as well as new images using the latest imaging techniques. You would be hard pressed to find a better book in this field." Reviewed by Doody's Review Service, Sep 2015
"The range and quality of images are not just remarkable but are also encyclopaedic to such an extent that they could form a clinical atlas on their own merit. As a general ophthalmic textbook, this is the gold standard. So much so that we can hold Kanski by Brad Bowling, to be a custodian of ophthalmic knowledge." Clin Exp Optom 2016; 99: 392
"For some healthcare professionals who are not ophthalmologists, diseases of the eyes can be a difficult to understand topic. Like any topic, once you master it then all of a sudden it seems a lot easier and makes much more sense. Certainly one way to master ophthalmology and get a better comprehension of the subject is to have access to this outstanding and excellent textbook. It is primarily aimed at specialist ophthalmologists both established and those in the training grades. However GPs with a special interest in ophthalmology or GPs who want an all-encompassing ophthalmology textbook may find that this fits the bill."? Reviewed by glycosmedia.com, Jul 2015
"I believe that Kanski's Clinical Ophthalmology is one of the most popular general ophthalmology textbooks out there. Its popularity is justified - it covers the basic topics and provides just enough detail to be useful in most situations. Whether you're learning ophthalmology for the first time, preparing for OKAP/board exams, or trying to remember some detail years down the road to help one of your patients, this text is a fantastic reference." Blog ophthalmologyreview.org, Nov 2015
"Overall I would say that this is certainly a book to have on your bookshelf. It is a very useful and complete textbook. You will not need to supplement this with other books as it contains all the relevant information that you would need on the topic."
