For his second volume of the Ophthalmology Annual, Dr Robert Reinecke has selected a spectrum of topics, ranging from new, rapidly evolving techniques, such as radial keratotomy and the use of hyaluronate in ophthalmic surgery, to updated discussions on cystoid macular edema, neovascular glaucoma, and chalazia. Although the chapters are concise, they are surprisingly comprehensive in their discussion of both historical perspectives and current management strategies. Each chapter is easy to read and a valuable resource for ophthalmologists at all levels of training and expertise.

Although most photographs are black-and-white, their fine quality is adequate compensation. The chapter "Imaging in Neuro-ophthalmology"
