For many people, laser eye surgery can correct their vision so they no longer need to feel about their defects in vision. Laser eye surgery reshapes the cornea, the clear front part of the eye that changes focusing power. Latest technologies in laser reduce surgical time, increasing the efficiency given the worldwide changes in health concepts and reimbursement, and reducing patients’ annoyance associated with stitches and long postoperative follow-up. The use of tissue obtained by bioengineering is the future of the rehabilitation of the ocular surface. By this book the reader get an exceptional update on current topic in cornea, external disease, cataract surgery including the recently available femtosecond laser, lens implant surgery, glaucoma, retina and vitreous. Both medical and surgical topics are covered, and the depth and breadth of the information presented is intended to bring the reader current with the newest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in our rapidly advancing field. This book also deals with the use of elevation based tomography in the screening of refractive surgery patients, and also about commonly misunderstood and rarely discussed source of post-operative surprises like optics and refraction errors.
