The first copy of the Wills Eye Manual hit the press in late 1989; it featured a black cover page with bold gold lettering and the Wills Eye logo proudly displayed on top. Published in a time before the invention of the world wide web or the advent of digital printing, this 450-page expertly sourced ocular disease reference guide took the ophthalmology world by storm. Since its debut, the manual has served as the go-to guide for trainees and seasoned physicians alike in diagnosing and treating more than 200 ocular diseases. To date, the Wills Eye Manual has published eight editions, with over 200,000 copies in circulation within ophthalmology clinics, emergency departments, and hospitals around the world.
