Refractive Eye Surgery by Leo D. Bores
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The new second edition of Refractive Eye Surgery provides a comprehensive text on the history, evolution, and current status of refractive eye surgery, written entirely by one author, a pioneer in the field. Surgical methods and patient workup are included in separate chapters describing each surgical technique. Among the surgeries described are lamellar, laser, and intraocular refractive surgery, radial keratotomy, surgery for astigmatism, and scleral shortening. The book also discusses complications, shortcomings of techniques, and results of surgery. Extensive colour illustrations describing the techniques, as well as the optical properties of the cornea and its surface topography make this a valuable surgical atlas. Methods of measuring and analyzing the corneal surface, the derivation of the corneal shape factor, and base topics such as ametropia, myopia, hyperopia, and astimatism are also covered.
