It is a handbook of vitreoretinal surgery and may be useful for fellows, senior residents, or junior practitioners in a retina care center. There are 14 chapters in the book. The first chapter is on the history of vitreous surgery which explains the evolution of vitreous surgery in terms of instruments and developments of techniques in simple language. In the following chapters, techniques such as pars plana vitrectomy and macular surgeries are described in detail, with their complications and prognoses. The last chapter discusses vitreous substitutes (both conventional ones such as gases and liquids and new ones such as semi-fluorinated alkanes), which adds to the importance of the book. Except for the last chapter, each chapter has high-resolution intraoperative photographs and images, which helps the reader in understanding contents of the chapter. In summary, this handbook provides guidance for clinicians dealing with the technique of vitrectomy.
