About this book

This book, in a concise format, explains how to perform manual small incision cataract surgery. The procedure is broken down into the chief elements and described in a step by step manner. Besides the description of the procedure, the book covers indications, necessary supplies, preparation, complication management, and postoperative care. The authors are experts from around the world, and the book will be of value both for surgeons new to this technique and for experienced surgeons who need a review of the procedure. While phacoemulsification surgery has now become the standard of care, understanding how to perform manual extracapsular cataract extractions competently is crucial when faced with complications during phacoemulsification surgery, when operating in a region of the world without access to phacoemulsification or femtosecond lasers, or when a manual approach may be a better choice for the patient.

Reviews

“This book provides a step-by-step description of manual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS), from instruments and supplies needed to the actual steps and considerations of the surgery. … This is a masterfully written, concise yet comprehensive discussion of the MSICS technique. It could serve as a standalone book for ophthalmic surgeons attempting to learn the technique as well as those attempting to simply review the technique.” (Diana V. Do, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2016)
