This is the third edition of Reese's masterpiece. This book has acquired an importance among English-speaking ophthalmologists only equaled by Duke-Elder's System of Ophthalmology. While the latter remains the ophthalmologists' bible, Reese's book will be his breviary. Reese has become the unchallenged doyen of ophthalmic oncologists in the English-speaking nations.

This book is based on decades of rich personal experience. How can one argue with an author who described the first case of palpebral pilomatrixoma in 1925? How can one take issue with a man who initiated the modern radiation treatment of retinoblastoma in 1936?

The new edition has been modernized in many ways. Every chapter has been brought up-to-date, and the references have been pruned and rejuvenated. A number of chapters have been added that were contributed by Dr Reese's collaborators at the Harkness Eye Institute (D. J. Coleman, R. M. Ellsworth, I. S. Jones, and S. L. Trokel)
