From the reviews: "This book offers a valuable beginners' guide to teleophthalmology. ! Each chapter begins with a useful summary that is then expanded upon in the main text. ! Illustrations, graphs, and tables also add to the text, as do a number of appendices. It is easy to read as it seems to be aimed at a reader who is new to teleophthalmic principles and care. ! I think it is a useful resource into the developing world of teleophthalmology."
