The third volume of "Cataract and Refractive Surgery" in the "Essentials in Ophthalmology" series highlights the remarkable advances that are taking place in both cataract and refractive surgery. Major progress is occurring in our ability to image the eye, manage complex situations, provide superior quality of vision and address the critical issue of surgical management of presbyopia. Topics covered in this volume include: anterior segment imaging; micro-incisional lens surgery; capsular tension rings; intraocular lens complications and management; Toric IOLs; Wavefront-modified IOLs; modulation of higher-order aberrations after refractive surgery; accommodation research; and, corneal approaches to treating presbyopia. These topics underscore our growing ability to measure the anatomy and the image-forming capabilities of the eye and to provide it with superior quality and range of vision. The editors believe that this book will be of great value to clinicians who seek to provide their cataract and refractive surgical patients with the highest quality care.
