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)
