Modern Problems in Ophthalmology is a monograph concisely written in English, French, and German. This publication was the result of a congress of the Jules Gonin Club in Amersfoort, in 1963. This colloquium was devoted to a study of the preventive therapy of Eales' disease and of retinal detachment by chorioretinal coagulation. Encircling methods and silver plumb depression techniques are described, presenting the advantages and disadvantages of each. Large sections are concerned with the effects of xenon-arc photocoagulation on various retinal diseases, mainly retinal detachment and tears, retinoblastoma, Eales' disease, and diabetic retinopathy. A special chapter in this volume deals with recent advances in chorioretinal surgery.
This publication of the original papers presented at this meeting and detailed accounts of the ensuing discussions constitutes a valuable contribution to a capital problem of ophthalmology.
