Er impact on vision and ophthalmological surgery no one outside the field really knows who Charles is or what he’s accomplished Moore decides to change that New York Times best selling author of Bush’s Brain and Emmy award winning television news correspondent James Moore documents his own journey in the struggle to save his eyesight while also weaving in a detailed account of the doctor’s profound accomplishments and their global impact on people Part biography part autobiography Give Back the Light is a dual track narr. Lt the legendary indefatigable retinal surgeon Dr Steve Charles At 75 Dr Charles who had developed a remarkable number of retinal surgery techniues and instruments was still skilfully performing ten microsurgical retinal operations a day He d performed approximately 38000 in his career to that point When he wasn t working he was travelling to provide charity care and teach others around the world the procedures that could save patients vision Sadly by the time Dr Charles examined Moore his condition was inoperable However the journalist Was Intrigued By This intrigued by this high energy single minded medical specialist and felt his accomplishments should be known by than a relatively small number of retinal surgeons hence this bookMoore proceeds to provide a history of the development #Of Surgical Techniues For The Repair Of Torn And Detached # surgical techniues for the repair of torn and detached He details the achievements of big innovators of 1960s and 1970s ophthalmological surgery who trained Dr Charles at the University of Miami s Bascom Palmer Eye Institute A uick scan of the text reveals that after this Steve Charles s own biography and contributions to the field of ophthalmology surgical and technical take centre stage Dr Charles also has a mechanical and electrical engineering background which proved valuable in designing revolutionary instruments euipment and even techniues for eye surgeryI regret to say that I found the book s many technical details and its considerable medical jargon extremely dry reading Not far into the third chapter I decided not to complete the book While Moore s text does contain photographs of scientists euipment and instruments involved in retinal surgery there is uite stunningly not a single diagram of the eye Moore assumes that his reader has the same knowledge that he a sufferer of retinal detachment gained over a five ear period as a patient and during the additional ears it took to write his bookThough I found Moore s writing far from engaging I ll allow that it is grammatical and competent I m sure if I d been interested in the material or motivated I could have finished the book The fact is from the start I was probably not prepared to read a text that contained this degree of detail about eye surgery techniues instruments and euipment and Moore did little to inspire interest I was expecting a book geared towards a reasonably intelligent lay person Unfortunately I didn t get that book Moore does not methodically guide a reader such as myself who has only basic knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the eye and almost no familiarity with eye surgery Instead from the get go he bombards the reader with medical terminology When approaching new medical subjects I prefer a supportive approach that provides me with diagrams and some basic explanations Because I felt I wasn t getting what I needed I spent an inordinate amount of time googling medical terms surgical descriptions and eye diagrams I didn t have much confidence that I could read the book without this kind of educative front loading Even that proved to be inadeuate to the task too much work for far too little pleasure I don t think it is unreasonable to expect an author to do some of this set up work for a lay reader think it is unreasonable to expect an author to do some of this set up work for a lay reader raises another issue who exactly is Moore s intended audience In the foreword retired Iowa ophthalmologistretinal surgeon Christopher Blodi suggests there are three types of readers for the book 1 those with medical problems who are trying to negotiate their own way through the healthcare system or adjust to disability 2 those interested in driven individuals and 3 ophthalmology specialists interested in learning about someone who has dominated the field I don t really fit into any of these categories and maybe that s why I found the book so unsatisfying My sense is that only the third type of reader could cope well with this text. Ative that highlights the challenges and achievements of modern health care  ​This is a book about a physician who has been intimately involved in saving the vision of millions of people through the spread of his technology and surgical techniues Dr Charles is an historical and et mostly unknown figure who has lived a remarkable life of great importance In the telling Moore helps readers view the wider world and their contributions to it in different light and offers a prosaic understanding of the sheer joy of just seeing?.
