"This is an elegant and immensely satisfying book on the anatomy and functioning of the human eye. Its breadth and depth make it appropriate for both vision practitioners and upper undergraduates and graduate students interested in vision research. This is a landmark book on the eye which belongs in every biological, optometric and ophthalmological library."
