Because knowledge is the one thing that gains value the more it is used, the entire textbook is available as a free PDF and ePub file. The PDF is about 57 MB and the ePub is about 25 MB, so if you connection is slow, find a more interesting website to surf while they download. Also, the book is produced without any corporate or pharmaceutical funding. The means that we don't have a lot of resources for generating versions with a lot of functionality--these files are basic and non-flowing. If you have skills along these lines and want to help improve the offerings, let us know.

Reviews of the first edition:
"is a book that is going to be an invaluable asset for our postgraduate students and diabetic retinopathy team."

"This book passes on a wealth of experience with a refreshing style and would be ideal for a general ophthalmologist wishing to become proficient at looking after patients with diabetic retinopathy."
N. Astbury M.D., London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
"I have...found it a unique and fascinating book: not only it is based in the best current scientific evidence, but it is also a very practical book, written in a very understandable, simple, colloquial language. This book will be most useful to practicing ophthalmologists worldwide and shoud be highly recommended also for resident education."
