This is the first treatise of this kind in the Portuguese language. The author has been associated with the Penido Burnier Ophthalmological Institute of Sao Paulo for many years. Since 1968, he has been the chief of the retina service of that renowned hospital. He spent some time with the Retinal Associates in Houston, where he worked with Dr Alice McPherson and Dr Roberto Moura.
Fourteen other Brazilian ophthalmologists have collaborated in this book, but it is the merit of Dr Holanda de Freitas to have it assembled and presented in a most pleasing way. In general, the book gives an excellent review of the modern approach to retinal detachment and its surgical treatment.
