Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...well written and easy to understand. The diagrams, photographs, and tables are helpful and of great quality and facilitate the comprehension of the different topics...The authors have remained objective while covering all the topics....I highly recommend the book to general ophthalmologists who wish to revisit the subject, and I strongly suggest that all ophthalmology residents and new surigcal retina fellows should read this book early in their training."—Reviewed by Felipe De Alba, MD, Department of Ophthalmology, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, Illinois, in JAMA
