Editorial Reviews

Jon P. Gieser
This second edition of a book originally published in 1989 is a summary of current knowledge of retinal physiology and pathology. The author has attempted to distill the current knowledge of medical/surgical practice and basic science retina research into a three-volume reference book. Although the author acknowledges that no textbook can be entirely complete and current, he has done a marvelous job. The book is written for ophthalmologists and retina specialists, although aspects are suitable for residents, basic science researchers, and others. More than 180 authors, many of whom are internationally renowned, have contributed. The book is well organized. Volume I covers inherited retinal diseases, ocular tumors, and aspects of basic science research. Volume II addresses medical retina. Volume III deals with retinal detachments and other diseases that generally require surgical intervention. Chapters are stylistically similar to those in the first edition, and the volumes will seem familiar to readers who have used the first edition. Most chapters in this second edition have significant, although not major, additions and revisions that are generally excellent. Chapters unique to the second edition deal with indocyanine angiography, submacular surgery, and pediatric surgery, to name a few. This reference textbook is essential to any practicing ophthalmologist or resident who has more than a passing interest in diseases and treatment of the retina. It is comprehensive and very well written, dealing with nearly all aspects of retinal disease. Ophthalmologists who have the first edition probably will not be compelled to obtain the second, but all others will want to have a copy of thisedition.
