by Amar Agarwal

The book is a comprehensive literature on the corneal topography which includes methods, machines, software and surgical implications. Clinical correlations, diagnosis in corneal pathologies, pre and post refractive surgery changes assessment are some of the major highlights of the sections. Newer modalities of Topographic screening and wavefront guided refractive surgeries are also discussed widespread in the book. Glued intraocular lens, Aberropia, higher order aberrations, aberrometry, Pentacam, applications of anterior segment optical coherence tomography are also covered. The text book provides the readers with widespread knowledge on corneal topography including interpretation, selection criteria’s, preoperative screening, basics and newer machine models. It also includes the Alpins method of vector analysis used for astigmatism assessment. Corneal Wavefront-guided retreatments, optical path difference (OPD) scanning system, selective zonal ablation, topographic linked excimer laser ablation and implantable Collamer lens have also been explained. Various aberrometers and their working principles have been dealt in detail. With the merging of the fields of cataract, refractive surgeries and imaging technology; anterior segment surgeons are expected to be well versed in understanding diagnostic technologies after reading this book.
