This is the second edition of a highly successful textbook that in many areas has become the preferred manual of vitreoretinal surgery. It provides a complete guide to all common vitreoretinal surgical procedures and also covers diagnosis and other aspects of management. The book is designed to allow a trainee or professional vitreoretinal surgeon to determine the best methodology in individual cases. In order to acquaint the reader with different opinions, "surgical pearls" have been contributed by other international experts in the field. These have proved popular in the past as an illustration of alternative methods, without detracting from the overall method described by the main author. Vitreoretinal Surgery will continue to prove particularly popular amongst trainees, but will also be of value to practicing professionals who need help in the management of difficult and rare cases. The text is backed up by the provision of videos of some aspects of the surgery.

"This book is highly recommended as a comprehensive primary text for ophthalmology residents and VR fellowship trainees. This book also serves as an adequate refresher and content update for experienced VR surgeons. The surgical pearls contained in the text, such as those by Dr. Eller, are invaluable." (Shree K. Kurup, Victor T. Copeland and Katherine A. Tsamis, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, May, 2014)
