Since the 1970s, vitrectomy techniques and ophthalmologic tamponade that has been developed and widely applied clinically have greatly improved the treatment for posterior segment oculopathy.
Along with the vitrectomy techniques and equipment updates, the surgical extent and indication are expanding rapidly. Such as from the cornea to subretina; from just posterior segment surgery to combined anterior and posterior segment surgery; from cataract surgery complications, intraocular foreign body removal, endophthalmitis,  diabetic retinopathy, complicated retinal detachment, to maculopathy. All novel techniques are based on previous experience that could help new surgeons to avoid mistakes and ensure better service for the patients. There is an abundance of publications about vitreoretinal surgery recently, but the need to introduce the latest advances in the world is still urgent. Therefore, I accepted Mr. Dejan Grgur’s invitation to edit this book.
The authors in this book are experienced surgeons and researchers who took advantage of new techniques and have extensive academic influence. They have summarized and shared precious experience in this book, which we cannot find in other publications, and this is one of the traits in this book. The book is divided into 6 chapters and I believe many of them have special features we can learn from. The authors have not only shared their experience but also introduced the latest techniques in the world. Since different writers have provided the content of this book, the writing style may be characteristic.
Thus, we unify the professional terms and respect their own styles. There are some overlaps among chapters but we have kept these parts to benefit from different authors’ views and experiences for discussion.
The goal of this book is to help young surgeons learn about treatment and surgical techniques, and share experience with senior doctors. Due to limitations in our own knowledge, I hope the readers will hold a critical attitude and give comments in order to improve the future editions.
