In the preface to this book, the editors state: Surgeons recognize that technical or bioengineering advances have been accompanied by striking progress in the development and application of old and new drugs that can be used to protect ocular tissues from trauma. The contributors to this volume wish to convey and consolidate this new knowledge for the ophthalmic surgeon. New information about the relationship of anesthesia, analgesia, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory drugs to the eye patient as well as to the operating specifics of irrigating solutions, gases, and other useful drugs have been organized and are presented here in an effort to prevent, ameliorate, and treat damage done to the eye in the course of surgery.
There are 37 contributors, most of whom are leaders in their field, with a total of 29 chapters. On the whole, these individuals and their contributions meet the goals set by the editors.
