Editorial Reviews

"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)
