Finally, there appears a book dedicated solely to the posterior segment of the eye. "Retina, Choroid, and Vitreous" is the fifth volume and a perfect complement of the "Requisites in Ophthalmology" series; it extracts the most essential information of what is important to learn for both ophthalmologists in practice and in training. Dr. Pulido covers the most frequently found diseases, such as: age-related macular degeneration (the leading cause of blindness in the U.S.) and its recent breakthroughs, repair of retinal trauma and detachment, treatment of infections, and the evaluation of all imaging technologies and diagnostic modalities. Unique to the requisite series, it adopts a well-illustrated format comprised of boxes, highlighted sections, and points to remember. In addition, colour photographs depict the latest imaging techniques in order to aid the physician in accurately diagnosing ailments.
