About this book

This book addresses customized laser vision correction, an integral management option for the treatment of irregular corneas. This type of treatment reshapes the corneal surface in order to improve both the quality and the quantity of vision by reducing high order aberrations. Beginning with an introduction to the basics of this science, each type of customized laser vision correction is discussed in a clear and didactic format for rapid attainment of information. Throughout this practical clinical guide, examples are supported with the most recent scientific material and a step-by-step systematic methodology is included to fit all levels of ophthalmologists.
