Gems of Ophthalmology—Cataract Surgery

by HV Nema, Nitin Nema

This book focuses on Gems of Ophthalmology—Cataract Surgery. Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. This book consists of 27 chapters. The present book covers a wide range of topics on cataract surgery such as Manual small-incision cataract surgery, dye-enhanced cataract surgery, Pediatric cataract Surgery and IOL Implantation, etc. A number of chapters on phacoemulsification in difficult situations such as posterior polar cataract, white cataract, hard cataract, and cataract surgery in small pupil, subluxated lens and compromised cornea have also been included for the benefit of young cataract surgeons. The chapter on Dropped nucleus or nuclear fragment cautions the cataract surgeon where to stop. Femtosecond laser (FL) has made its inroads in cataract surgery also. FL clear corneal incision, capsulotomy and softening of nucleus make phacoemulsification easy and provide excellent results. The book is concise and information on cataract surgery is presented in an easily readable form. It is profusely illustrated. Postgraduate students, residents, and general ophthalmologists can learn not only how to perform a safe cataract surgery but also to tackle difficult cases.
