"Essentials in Ophthalmology" is a new review series covering all of ophthalmology categorized in eight subspecialties. It will be published quarterly, thus each subspecialty will be reviewed biannually.Given the multiplicity of medical publications already available, why is a new series needed? Consider that the half-life of medical knowledge is estimated to be around 5 years. Moreover, it can be as long as 8 years between the first description of a medical innovation in a peer-reviewed scientific journal and publication in a medical textbook. A series that narrows this time span between journal and textbook would provide a more rapid and efficient transfer of medical knowledge into clinical practice, and enhance care of our patients.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"The 177-page book contains 11 chapters written by experienced researchers and clinicians. Each chapter is followed by an extensive list of alphabetically sorted references. … Most articles are illustrated with high-quality graphs and tables. … The book is quite easy to read. It is written in perfect English. I would recommend this volume as complement reading for vitreo-retinal surgeons and researchers as well as for residents and fellows in ophthalmology. The book may also serve as a very useful searching tool … ." (F. Koerner, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 243, 2005)
