This book offers evidence-based information and a step-by-step guide on all surgical procedures relevant to inflammatory eye disease-a rarity in the textbook literature. Ocular inflammation presents a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. Inflammatory activity can often be managed by drug therapy. However, inadequate medical therapy may permit the development of various complications in the eye that cannot be sufficiently treated pharmacologically. Whereas drug management demands an interdisciplinary approach with well-trained specialists, surgical treatment of ocular complications due to inflammation requires an experienced surgeon. In this superbly practical new work, internationally renowned experts in the field provide answers to most of the frequently asked questions. Readers will find answers on the spectrum of clinical manifestations of inflammatory complications; the point at which medical therapy is no longer helpful; the absolute, relative indications, and contraindications for defined surgical procedures in this field; and the preferred surgical instruments and machines for these procedures.
