This is the third edition of what has become the reference book on cataract operations and their complications. The fact that, in such a short time, three editions have appeared speaks for the value and importance of this book. Dr Jaffe concentrates on the various complications of cataract operations and discusses them in detail and in depth. The indications for an operation are presented in the chapter, while the various surgical techniques are discussed in the first part of the book. One contribution on phakoemulsification is by Dr Charles D. Kelman and one chapter on keratomileusis and keratophakia is by Dr Jose I. Barraquer.
This book has become the standard work on cataract operations and has replaced the old book by Kirby. It is deservedly extremely popular, and no ophthalmologist who does or expects to perform cataract extractions can do without it.
