Description: This book presents a core body of information that can serve as the basis for future learning by all ophthalmic surgeons. It covers the major surgical categories and includes discussions of preoperative care, surgical technique, and postoperative management for each procedure. This third edition is a revision and update of the second edition, which was published in 1990.
Purpose: According to the author, the book is intended to provide a core of information to the comprehensive ophthalmologist and the subspecialist. The goal is to provide what needs to be known rather than everything that is known about a given topic. Given the vast amount of available information about ophthalmic surgery, a book such as this, which extracts the most useful and clinically relevant material, is indeed valuable.
Audience: The book is written for both the comprehensive ophthalmologist and the subspecialist. However, it could just as easily serve as a reference for the ophthalmologist in training. The author is a respected glaucoma expert from the Wills Eye Hospital and is indeed a credible authority on matters pertaining to ophthalmic surgery.
Features: All of the major surgical areas are covered, including orbital/plastic, strabismus, cornea/refractive, cataract, glaucoma, and vitreoretinal. Within each category, the major procedures are covered in detail, with diagrams and photographs where appropriate. Special attention is given to updates or modernization of older procedures (e.g., the trend toward clear corneal cataract surgery and away from planned extracapsular procedures). Glaucoma is particularly well covered, with detailed discussions on the indications for surgery, the choice of surgery for the individual patient, and postoperative management, including suture release or lysis. Trauma and repair of traumatic injuries are less well covered and this chapter could use some enhancement.
Assessment: This is a concise yet complete compilation of the major surgical procedures to be mastered by all ophthalmic surgeons. It is sufficiently detailed to provide a working knowledge of the various procedures, yet not so detailed that it is cumbersome or difficult to read. It incorporates the latest surgical technologies and innovations and therefore represents a significant update since the publication of the prior edition nearly 13 years ago. Experienced surgeons will find it a useful review of both established and cutting-edge techniques, while surgeons-in-training will find it a useful reference and starting point on which to build their surgical knowledge base.
