The readers are receiving this outstanding book which documents major advancements in the field of ocular oncology. Ocular oncology services are typically provided by highly trained subspecialists. However, general ophthalmologists also need to be sufficiently familiar with early signs, diagnostics, and treatment options to ensure timely management of oncological eye conditions which may progress into vision and life-threatening diseases. Several years of collaborative work have brought together more than 25 authors comprising ophthalmic oncologists, ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons, vitreo-retinal surgeons, ocular pathologists, and radiation oncologists from many internationally renowned healthcare institutions around the world. This book was designed to describe symptoms, diagnostic, and treatment approaches for oncologic conditions. It includes indications, pre- and postoperative care, and surgical techniques required to manage various eye cancer ailments with the help of ample illustrations. The text provides a detailed approach to treatment for common and rare diseases and summarizes the key points required for performing the surgeries. The video atlas, comprising of more than 20 well-edited videos, is a valuable opportunity to review the actual surgical steps and enables the readers to understand the procedures in a comprehensive manner. The learning experience of the user is significantly enhanced by these easy-to-follow tutorials. This book is fully in line with the strategic goals of the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) to improve patient’s lives and eyesight by improving education and knowledge. General ophthalmologists, ocular oncologists, fellows, and residents as well as students in training will all stand to benefit from this unique collaborative effort. The truly international cooperation, the open-access nature and availability of the book everywhere in the world, and this up-to-date resource as a guiding tool in the field of surgical ophthalmic oncology make it a special delight for the ICO.
