This is the second volume in a three-volume series. The first volume covers lids, orbits, and extraocular muscles, and the second covers retina and vitreous. This book was designed to provide beginning and experienced ophthalmic surgeons with clear, concise descriptions of anterior segment surgical procedures, and it achieves this goal. For a multiauthored text it is well organized and consistent in both quality and format.
Individual chapters were written by 18 accomplished ophthalmic surgeons. The main contributors include David Paton, MD, Herbert Kaufman, MD, Marguerite McDonald, MD, George Spaeth, MD, Klaus Heilmann, MD, G. O. H. Naumann, MD, Douglas Koch, MD, C. Steven Foster, MD, and David Mark, MD. A great attribute of the book is that all 561 illustrations were created by a single artist, which enhances the cohesiveness of the book. The many black-and-white drawings in each chapter are of first-rate quality.
"The drawings alone make this book
