Overview

Inflammatory and infectious diseases in the eye often present very challenging diagnostic dilemmas and are difficult to manage. Despite advances in anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory therapy, permanent structural changes can occur in the eye because of intraocular inflammation or infection. These are best managed with surgery. Modern treatment of these inflammations and infections involves novel drug therapy and retina-vitreous surgical procedures. This is the first book to review the recent surgical protocols used in the management of intraocular inflammation and infection, and covers indications, pre-procedure therapy, surgical procedure, and complications.
