- Provides detailed practical information on a wide range of challenging cases drawn from the clinical practices of world leaders in the field
- Invaluable both for practicing refractive surgeons and for those in training
- Complements the authors’ successful previous book, Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery
This richly illustrated book is intended as a gold standard for the refractive surgeon. It complements the authors’ successful previous book, Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery, by providing detailed practical information on the management of specific cases. Worldwide leaders in the field document a wide range of challenging cases drawn from their own clinical practice. These cases relate to the planning of refractive laser treatment; intraoperative complications when using LASIK (Microkeratome and Femtosecond) and various surface treatments, including PRK, PTK, and EpiLASIK; early and late postoperative complications with these treatments; and a range of other complications that may arise during or after refractive surgery. This book will be an indispensable aid for the refractive surgeon and will assist in decision making when the surgeon is confronted by a difficult case.Table of Contents
