Surgical Management of Astigmatism

by Jorge L Alio, Dimitri T Azar, M Soledad Cortina, Joelle A Hallak

The aim of this book is to focus on the surgical management of astigmatism. Astigmatism is one of the most frequent problems encountered in the surgical management of cataract, cornea, and refractive conditions. In essence, the correction of astigmatism is part of the success of any anterior segment surgical procedure. Regardless of its types, astigmatism can be difficult to manage and may complicate surgical outcomes. In contrast to myopia, there is no single focal point in astigmatism, which poses a challenge to the modern trends in refractive and intraocular lens surgery. The modern trend is to obtain a unique quality of retinal images, not distorted by astigmatism. This book presents various solutions to the different types of astigmatism that the practical surgeon will find in today’s world of refractive and cataract-lens surgical practices. The different chapters of this book are based on scientific evidence and practice. This book discusses all the different methods to understand and manage astigmatism from laser surgery to incisional and intraocular lenses and also describes new diagnostic technology, patient selection, procedures and limitations across applications. This book also includes figures and illustrations to provide a comprehensive review.
