Summary
"Refractive Eye Surgery, Second Edition is a text on the history, evolution, and current status of refractive eye surgery, written entirely by one author, a pioneer in the field. Surgical methods and patient workup are included in separate chapters describing each surgical technique. Among the surgeries described are lamellar, laser, and intraocular refractive surgery, radial keratotomy, surgery for astigmatism and scleral shortening. The book discusses complications, shortcomings of techniques, and results of surgery. Extensive color illustrations describing the techniques, as well as the optical properties of the cornea and its surface topography make this a valuable surgical atlas. Methods of measuring and analyzing the corneal surface, the derivation of the corneal shape factor, and basic topics such as ametropia, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism are also covered."--BOOK JACKET
