WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Ivan Schwab is available to discuss the captivating story of the eye's voyage through time:
Dr. Schwab has been an ophthalmology professor at the University of California, Davis for more than 20 years and he was previously on the faculty at West Virginia University. His strong interest in biology and natural history led him to investigate ocular stem cells, bioengineered tissues for the eye and comparative optics and physiology. The research for his compelling new book took him from the Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rockies to the Ediacaran Hills in South Australia and to every point on earth holding answers to the wondrous ocular evolution.
Vision is evolution's greatest gift and its supreme triumph. For eight years, Dr. Schwab, a prominent ophthalmologist, traced evolution of the eye from its origin 543 million years ago while writing Evolution's Witness: How Eyes Evolved. This extraordinary voyage through time is a must read for ophthalmologists, optometrists, biologists, neurophysiologists and anyone interested in science. Yet everyone from an accountant to the CEO of a Fortune 500 company will be enthralled; the pages lead the mind through a fascinating world of discovery about vision, a saga rarely told before, and never with the intrigue, detail and imagery that Dr. Schwab presents. His book is a leisurely stroll through earth's history, one that brings a delightful balance of entertainment and intellectual stimulation. Evolution's Witness: How Eyes Evolved will be published by Oxford University Press in October. Dr. Schwab is now available for media interviews to discuss his many enlightening discoveries about the eyes.
