Description

In the next five years, excimer laser surgery will become the number-one growth area for all ophthalmologists. While much has been written about this exploding field, this new book is the first to deal exclusively with phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) and the advanced excimer procedures used to treat corneal disease. Excimer Laser Surgery combines guidelines for case selection, step-by-step instruction in PTK techniques, and coverage of operative complications - all supported by precise color photos and more than 30 case studies. The authors emphasize accurate diagnosis as the key to successful surgery and show which types of laser treatment are most appropriate for specific corneal disorders.
