About this book

This book reviews the surgical techniques currently employed for the management of astigmatism, with the aim of providing a clear, comprehensive, step-by-step guide that will help practitioners to optimize outcomes. The book is divided into two sections covering the cutting-edge surgical approaches in cataract and refractive patients. Renowned experts with many years of clinical experience describe options such as incisional techniques, toric intraocular lenses, femtosecond and excimer laser technology. In addition, guidance is offered on preoperative evaluation of astigmatism, candidate identification and classification, and surgical management following penetrating keratoplasty. Supplementary videos of informative sample cases are included to further aid everyday practice.
