Preface to the Sixth Edition
In the world of medicine, there is only one constant—change. Therefore, it has been essential
to bring out the sixth edition of this book. Another constant—the appreciation and feedback
from the readers, who are not just undergraduates, but also postgraduates and practising
ophthalmologists from all around the Indian subcontinent, has encouraged me to improve
and update the book. As a teacher, it has been a pleasure to see the readership of Essentials of
Ophthalmology grow and now after eighteen years, and with over 75,000 copies sold, the book
is stepping into adulthood!
Ophthalmology has changed considerably over the years, especially with the advancement
of technology, which reflect the improvement in surgical techniques, innovation in treatment
regimens, and even in the way we diagnose and manage diseases. The highlights of this edition
are—plenty of new colored diagrams and photographs, latest medical and surgical management
of some diseases, and updates on newer investigations. The new look and the use of American
spelling is to make the book reach out to a wider range of international readers. However, a few
things have not changed in this edition, like its predecessors, is in four color. The bulleted format
of the book, detailed illustrations, a selection of slit-lamp examination, and such features which
facilitate revision have been retained.
Finally, this edition marks the handover of the book from Current Books International to
Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers. I take this opportunity to thank my old publisher for taking
care of this book for so many years, and extend my thanks to my new publisher as well, who has
published four of my ophthalmology books previously. Thanks are also due to all the doctors
and staff members of Disha Eye Hospitals for their continued support and involvement. A special
thanks to Dr Aditya Pradhan, my cornea fellow who has helped me with some notes. Dr Soham
Basak, new budding ophthalmologist, has also helped me with his insights and suggestions and
as always, thanks to my wife Dr Bani and my daughter Sohini.
I hope this edition enhances your understanding of the subject. Readers are welcome to send
in more constructive criticism.
