Edited by Jay H. Krachmer, MD, and David A. Palay, MD, the Cornea Atlas is a beautiful book. Quality anterior segment photographs are difficult to take, and no photograph can ever match the detail of a skilled slitlamp examination, but these photographs come close. The photographs are sharp and detailed, and the editors have chosen good examples of each disease process illustrated. The atlas covers the full spectrum of cornea and external disease. There are 1098 photographs divided into 22 user-friendly sections. The new edition contains a completely revamped and expanded section on refractive surgery, new coverage of external eye manifestations of chemical and biological warfare, and molecular genetics of corneal dystrophies. Each photograph is accompanied by a caption that gives a brief but well-constructed summary of the photograph and the disease process illustrated. For example, a photograph of Thygeson superficial punctate keratitis is described as “elevated white pearls evident with central fluorescein staining (positive staining), and dark areas where fluorescein rolls off elevated edges of lesions (negative staining).” Another reference is needed for detailed information on each disease entity.
