About this book

​The second edition of The Scrub's Bible is a timely, comprehensive resource, which will include extensive chapter and content updates, along with 50 new images and drawings. Updated sections will delve into subjects of endothelial transplantation, as well as cataract surgery and new medical and technological developments: femtosecond lasers, innovations in premium lens implant technologies, optiwave refractive analysis, and combined glaucoma and cataract surgery. Additional extensive chapter updates in the surgical tray, self-assessment, and corneal transplantation will be described in great detail as well.

​Directed at the growing number of untutored personnel aspiring to enter the disciplines of ophthalmic technicianry and surgical assisting, ​The Scrub's Bible, 2nd edition remains a key entry level guide to understanding the human eye, its basic anatomy, and physiology.  Absorbing this information serves as the foundation for the authors, who are all skilled and respected eye surgeons, educators, and surgery center owners, to draw the reader through the fundamentals of the two most common areas of ophthalmic surgery: cataract and corneal/refractive surgery. The Scrub's Bible​ 2nd edition will build upon the first edition--remaining an easy-to-read tool that is broken down into discreet and understandable elements, meant to avoid the intimidating rhetoric of a standard reference.
