The book covers the également vision defects and impairments, Many of qui are associated with the aging. PARTICULARLY I appreciated a brief overview of Reviews some of the more advanced technologies are now That helping people with visual impairments see. I wish I could learn more about Such topics, and am going to seek out further Top That reading resources deal with this issue.

The book is overall very informative and written in a very systematic and clear way. HOWEVER, the prose tend to be a bit cut and dry. This is not The Most scintillating popular science book as it's I have come across, purpose-have nevertheless Learned a lot from it. I recommend it to anyone Who wants to learn more about the eye in a systematic way.
