About this book


When Sir Harold Ridley implanted the first intraocular lens in 1949, he irrevocably coupled lens extraction with refractive surgery. The purpose of the implant remains essentially refractive to this day. However, we are now witnessing an unprecedented flowering of technology for pseudophakia.

Elimination of defocus and astigmatism, implantation of accommodative intraocular lenses and pseudophakic correction of higher-order aberrations require systematic preoperative evaluation and meticulous surgical technique. Surgeons must meet the challenges of understanding and implementing this new technology if they are to ride the coming demographic tidal wave of baby boomers desiring excellent vision without relying on spectacles.

Refractive Lens Surgery

- Represents a compilation of the best cutting edge practices for achieving success with refractive lens exchange

- Provides the essential information you need to succeed during the current  renaissance of intraocular lens technology

- Serves as both a textbook and a reference guide to this exciting and rapidly growing segment of ophthalmology

From mastering biometry and lens power calculations in eyes that have had prior keratorefractive surgery to learning the latest micro-incision lens extraction techniques, this book is an invaluable resource that makes sense of the myriad of new developments in this field.
