Written and edited by the world-famous expert G.O.H. Naumann, this textbook delves into the details of ocular structures such as the nuances of morphology, surgical anatomy and pathology. The text covers unique features of intraocular surgery in closed system and open eye contexts. It goes on to cover crucial aspects of restoring the anterior chamber. Then it delineates the spectrum of potential complications in (pseudo-) exfoliation-syndromes as well as the most vulnerable cell populations. Readers are also treated to the features of normal and pathologic wound healing after non-mechanical laser and mechanical inventions. Brilliant artwork and sketches illustrate the complex pathology.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Applied Pathology for Ophthalmic Microsurgeons, conveys the basic concepts of microsurgical intervention in the management of various ophthalmic disorders . . The highlight of the book is its documentation of the concepts. . At the end of the book is a listing of figures with brief legends. This unique feature is highly useful for quick reference to the clinical and histologic features of ophthalmic diseases. Ophthalmic microsurgeons, ophthalmic pathologists, and graduate students pursuing training in ophthalmology will benefit from reviewing these chapters . ." (Stephen Ryan, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 247, 2009)"This text is truly unique among textbooks of ophthalmic pathology. . illustrations are of superb quality and provide significant value in explaining the discussions of normal and pathologic ocular anatomy. . provides an excellent addition to the ophthalmic literature. There is no other text that I am aware of that combines the disciplines of ocular anatomy, morphology, and histopathology in a focused discussion of ophthalmic microsurgery. . an invaluable resource to ophthalmic surgeons at all levels of surgical training and experience." (Jay Ira Perlman, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 302 (10), September, 2009)
