Vitreoretinal (VR) surgery has steadily evolved over the years and this handbook provides a comprehensive overview about its past, present and future. It covers a wide array of topics ranging from its fascinating origins to recent technological advances, from surface anatomy to their clinical relevance, from anaesthesia to building and maintenance of operation theatre, from major surgical steps to sub-steps, from preventing to managing complications, and from routine surgeries to rare surgeries. Included in addition is a section on futuristic surgeries and another on important studies in relation to vitreoretinal surgery. Hence, Handbook of Vitreoretinal Surgery serves as a ready reference for both fledgling and experienced VR surgeons in this exciting field of ophthalmic surgery.
• Includes recent developments like 3D surgery, telescopic IOL, bionic implants and robotic surgery.
• Highlights the importance of surface anatomy and provides a deeper view into the working of vitreous machines, microscopes and other surgical components.
• Text is supported with videos of rare surgeries like endoillumination-assisted scleral buckling surgery, placement of retisert intravitreal implant, suprachoroidal drug injection, intralesional injection into a subretinal abscess and endoillumination-assisted biopsy of intraocular mass lesions.
