This book, the result of a 5-year collaborative work under the auspices of the French Society of Ophthalmology, reflects a growing concern toward the complications of anterior segment surgery. The research team, led by a representative of one of the best surgical schools in France, has succeeded in showing that despite its increasing sophistication, ophthalmic surgery still may induce severe complications. Most of these problems are adequately dealt with, although it is difficult to cover comprehensively all topics of retinal complications in such a format. A strong emphasis is placed on understanding the causes, improving prevention efforts, and coping with various challenging situations. Addressing crucial and often overlooked problems, this work deserves to be on the shelves of any French-speaking ophthalmic surgeon.
