This book is exceptional in explaining not only when and how but also why vitrectomy is performed - an additional focus that will help trainee surgeons to develop their own critical thinking. Uniquely, the book's first part describes "the life of the vitreoretinal surgeon" to help residents decide whether the field is indeed suitable for them, and if yes, how they can chart their own course in the absence of a formal fellowship program.

The second and third parts discuss the fundamentals in VR surgery, such as the general philosophy underlying vitrectomy, equipment, examination, timing, anesthesia, the surgeon's posture, and the organization of the operating room. The final two parts are dedicated to surgical strategy and tissue tactics, reviewing the principles of surgical maneuvers and the practical sides of diagnosis-specific issues. An appendix is also included, which offers additional guideposts for the aspiring trainee surgeon, including a description of how an ideal mentor should act in surgery. The book is written in an easy-to-follow format with bullet points and text boxes, and has well over 250 color images and line drawings as well as over 60 tables.
