The process of training vitreoretinal surgeons necessitates and is enhanced
by involving literature and books. The recent years have seen a plethora of
books released from the "first wave" of vitreoretinal surgeons, in many cases,
accumulating more than 3 decades of individual experience in vitreous and
retinal surgery. In addition, a multitude of literature about retinal disease
has been made available both in single as well as multiple-volume editions.
What then, is the need for another book about vitreoretinal surgery? Thankfully,
the editors of this book make the answer fairly simple.
