Sight is arguably the most important of our five senses. Each year, novel discoveries are made that improve vision, making ophthalmology an exciting field of medicine. Yet, at the dawn of this new century, only a proverbial handful of physicians who deal with vision-related eye diseases, such as glaucoma or diabetes, are African American. Breaking the Color Line in Medicine: African Americans in Ophthalmology is a groundbreaking text documenting an often overlooked topic within the world of medicine and opthalmology. Through intensive research, Lenworth N. Johnson, MD and O.C. Bobby Daniels, EdD present the evolution of African Americans in this noble field of medicine.
