About this book

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; intra operative 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.

Reviews

“This book details complications of refractive surgery and how some of the best surgeons and teachers in the field deal with them. … Ophthalmology residents and practitioners are an appropriate audience, and specifically those who are interested in performing refractive surgery. … The usefulness of this book lies in its unique presentation of the complications in easy-to-find and parsed chapter headings.” (Jonathan W. Crews, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2015)

“Refractive surgery cases affected by complications are the focus of this book, and in it, four editors show in practical terms how such complications can be managed. They provide the important knowledge and essential details necessary to achieve successful outcomes. … This is an excellent and essential book for any student or practitioner of refractive surgery to own.” (Nano Khilnani, Biz India Online News, bizindia.net, August, 2015)
