Surgical Techniques in Ophthalmology (Cataract Surgery)

by Ashok Garg, Jorge L Alio

The editors have assembled an impressive collection of chapters devoted to complex cases and advanced topics in cataract surgery. Equally noteworthy is their lineup of international contributors who have written detailed descriptions of their pearls and strategies. In most cases, experts have taken a step-by-step approach to describing their techniques, which are illustrated with a generous number of photos and diagrams. There is appropriate emphasis on removing the dense cataract and multiple contributors describe a wide assortment of strategies ranging from biaxial and coaxial microincisional surgery to several methods of manual small incision extracapsular surgery. The entire gamut of phaco methods is covered as well. Finally, many new and innovative technologies and approaches are introduced in this book. These range from using intraoperative wavefront aberrometry, to glue-fixating IOL haptics to the sclera in the absence of capsular support.
