Refractive Surgery

by Ashok Garg, Emanuel Rosen, Frank Jozef Goes, Jerome Jean Bovet

This multispecialist contribution enriches a book directed at the practical refractive surgeon in their daily practice. This book addresses among other topics, those of photorefractive keratectomy for high myopia, after penetrating keratoplasty, lasik complications and their management, crosslinking and other many contributions that involve lasik, lenticular refractive surgery, phakic IOLs and their complications. For the efficient and competent refractive surgeon, the decision taking process involves fast recognition of risk factors, quick indication of the different alternatives to solve a refractive error, evaluation of the tentative complications to be avoided and, finally, taking the right decision for the benefit of the best outcome for the patient. A correct introspection into the problem for the experienced refractive surgeon may take seconds or a minute for a right decision. The novel refractive surgeon needs training and understanding and this book will provide those refractive surgeons in training the adequate perspective into this complex process including, in an outstanding manner, the clinical experience that has passed through the hands of the surgeons in other patients. This book transfers to the novel surgeon many of the opinions based on the daily practice of extremely competent and relevant “stars” in worldwide refractive surgery. The knowledge gained through science and experience is the basis of the art of being a good doctor and a good refractive surgeon. This book also provides an insight into those technologies that at the moment are most updated and adequate for our patients.
