Abstract

This timely and authoritative reference studies the innovative laser vision procedure that combines elements of PRK and LASIK for advancements in the treatment of disorders such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The book guides surgeons through every aspect of laser surgery, a promising technique for when Lasik is not recommended, and provides in-depth discussions of various surgical techniques and settings, complications and side-effects, instrumentation procedures, and possible treatment outcomes for optimal patient care. Providing color illustrations throughout the text, thirty stimulating chapters explore strategies for the management of LASEK applications.
