Written by an international group of the foremost experts in refractive surgery, this full-color text/atlas is a step-by-step guide to the latest techniques and technology in LASIK, EPILASIK, and LASEK. Major sections focus on preoperative evaluation and machine dynamics; LASIK, EPILASIK, and LASEK surgical techniques; complications and their management; and recent advances and future prospects. More than 400 illustrations demonstrate the procedures. A DVD accompanying the book offers nine video demonstrations of Zyoptix laser; femtosecond laser for corneal flaps; EPILASIK; LASEK; customized LASIK; LASIK surgical technique; presbyopic LASIK for myopia and hyperopia; and LASIK after penetrating keratoplasty. =Table Of Contents PREOPERATIVE EVALUATION AND MACHINES DYNAMICS: Fundamentals in Corneal Topography / Principles of Scanning Lasers for Customized LASIK / Orbscan Corneal Mapping in Refractive Surgery / Advances in Microkeratomes / Femtosecond Laser for Corneal Flaps / Rotational Eyetracker System, Its Importance and Clinical Outcomes / Posterior Corneal Changes in Refractive Surgery / Pre-LASIK Retina Examination and Its Clinical Relevance / Pre-Laser Assisted Stromal in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) Investigation of Dry Eye / Dry Eye as Informed Consent Prior to Refractive Surgery LASIK, EPILASIK AND LASEK SURGICAL TECHNIQUES: Aberropia: A New Refractive Entity / LASIK: Indications and Surgical Steps / Corneal Wavefront Guided LASIK / Zyoptix / Topography Assisted LASIK / Bifocal Profiles and Strategies of Presbyopic-LASIK / Presbyopic Multifocal LASIK (PML): A New Approach in Corneal Refractive Surgery / Hormone Treatment and Refractive Surgery / Presby-LASIK in Pseudophakic Eyes with the Wavelight Allegretto / Wavefront Aberrometry for Irregular Astigmatism / Hyperopic LASIK for Accommodative Esotropia / Wide Zone LASIK for Hyperopia / Topographic and Aberrometer Guided Laser / Presbyopic LASIK / Corneal Wavefront LASIK after Penetrating Keratoplasty / IOL Power Calculations after Corneal Refractive Surgery / Comparison of Methods for IOL Power Calculation after Incisional and Photoablative Refractive Surgery / EPILASIK: An Advanced Surface Ablation Procedure / Excimer Laser Subepithelial Ablation (ELSA) or LASEK Offers Return to Surface Ablation / Tear Film Function, Ocular Surface Integrity and Corneal Sensation After Laser-Assisted Subepithelial Keratectomy / LASEK (Laser Assisted Subepithelial Keratectomy) / A New Suction Trephine for LASEK / Ocular Pharmacokinetics in LASIK and LASEK Surgery COMPLICATIONS AND THEIR MANAGEMENT: LASIK Complications and Management / A New Algorithm for Controlling Corneal Asphericity in LASIK / Critical Issues Affecting LASIK Outcomes / Management of LASIK and LASEK Complications (Interesting Cases) / Corneal Ectasia Post LASIK: The Orbscan Advantage / LASIK and Dry Eyes / Management of the Dry Eye (Ocular Surface Syndrome=OSS) after Refractive Surgery / LASIK Hinge Location and Dry Eye RECENT ADVANCES AND FUTURE PROSPECTS: ReLASIK (LASIK Enhancement) / Solid-state Lasers for Refractive Surgery / Corneal Biomechanics: Customization / Thermal Keratoplasty for Hyperopic Correction using a Focused Diode Laser / Recent Update on LASIK Techniques DVD CONTENTS: Zyoptix Laser / Femtosecond Laser for Corneal Flaps / EPILASIK / LASEK / Customised LASIK / LASIK Surgical Technique / Presbyopic LASIK for Myopia & Hyperopia "A New Optical Theory": The Hypermultifocality of the Cornea / EPILASIK / LASIK after PKP.
