Schepens' Retinal Detachment and Allied Diseases, 2nd ed

Author Affiliations


Arch Ophthalmol. 2001;119(9):1397. doi:

The second edition of Schepens' Retinal Detachment and Allied Diseases is an encyclopedic compilation of the clinical experience of 3 main authors. A few chapters were written by other contributing authors. The limited authorship of this textbook resulted in a uniformity of style and content generally not found in other multiauthored textbooks concerning this subject.

The intended audience is the practicing vitreoretinal specialist, who would best use this work as a reference textbook. However, this book could also benefit resident physicians, and especially vitreoretinal fellows. These physicians-in-training would best use this textbook by reading pertinent chapters prior to entering the operating room.
