Review:

The appeal and major strength of this text is its inter-disciplinary approach to understanding presbyopia, both in terms of its origin and its treatment. Together with the book being well written and easy to comprehend, this multi-disciplinary approach makes it of value to practitioners and researchers alike. Optometrists manage presbyopia on a daily basis. A thorough understanding of the presbyopic condition and its correction, now and into the future, are therefore of clinical value and will certainly be achieved by reading this text. - Laura Downie, "The" "University of Melbourne, Clinical and Experimental Optometry""

Anyone who wants to understand where the field of presbyopia is heading will benefit from the book It sets the stage for the anticipated advances in the coming decade. Any clinician or student wanting to become more familiar with current and future possibilities and the science underlying the emerging technologies should look no further than this excellent volume.
- Mark A. Bullimore, "University of Houston, College of Optometry, Houston, TX, Ophthalmic & Physiological Optics""

"All in all, this is a very comprehensive review of the current knowledge about presbyopia and its treatment...it is well worth the read."
