Readers will discover the practical information ophthalmic surgeons need to address a wide range of intra- and postoperative complications associated with vitreo-retinal surgery.

In the ever-changing field of vitreo-retinal surgery, the factor that may best distinguish a great surgeon from a good one is the ability to avoid and manage complications. The text addresses a broad range of complications, occurring in both established and emerging surgical techniques.

Each potential complication is analyzed in detail, including information on pathogenesis and risk factors. Chapters are organized by potential complication, with each addressed by a single contributing author as if he/she is the surgeon on the case. While created specifically for vitreo-retinal surgeons, this book will provide useful information for other members of the surgical team as well as for general ophthalmologists, residents, and optometrists who see patients before and after vitreo-retinal procedures.
