Lasik Surgery

In the past 20 years refractive surgery has evolved from incisional to laser-based procedures. And the most common and widely performed procedure worldwide is LASIK (Laser in Situ Keratomileusis). Since its inception, LASIK has won over both the ophthalmologist and the patient. It is relatively easy to use, quickly effective, and less painful than other techniques.

This book brings together the latest trends and advances in LASIK, with 17 chapters written by 28 international expert contributors, and edited by 3 globally recognised pioneers of LASIK treatment. There is also a free DVD-Rom, with 10 different demonstrations of techniques, including Pentacam, which has never been made available before. Ophthalmologists nowadays require a single source of comprehensive information on LASIK urgery, and this book fulfills that need.
