Book Description

Dr. Zoltan Z. Nagy performed the first femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery in a human eye in 2008. As one of the most authoritative sources on the topic, Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery: Facts and Results presents the history of the development and use of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery summarizes the results of five years of pioneering techniques by Dr. Nagy and his team, including personal reflections and thoughts, as well as a series of classic papers.

Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery consists of two main sections. The first section discusses and reviews the new results for the reader from the research. The second section comprises original articles on the topic of femtosecond laser cataract surgery that is essential to ophthalmologists.

Additional features include:

• A review of the current state-of-the-art usages of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery
• Examine existing technologies that compete with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and compare outcomes
• Discuss key secrets to successful surgical techniques using femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery
• How to address and manage common complications associated with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery

Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery presents these clinical results with cataract and corneal application, and highlights basic research with the strength of the anterior capsule and will assist ophthalmologists and residents alike gain a better understanding of the femtosecond laser cataract surgery process.

About the Editors

Zoltán Z. Nagy, MD, PhD, DSc is a Professor of Ophthalmology in the Department of Ophthalmology at Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary. He received his MD in 1986 at the Szent-Györgyi Albert Medical University, Szeged, Hungary. In the same year, he started his residency program in ophthalmology. After specialization in general ophthalmology, he received a scholarship in the Department of Ophthalmology in Erlangen at the Friedrich Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg with Professor Gottfried Otto Naumann. In Erlangen he studied the role of secondary ultraviolet exposure in eyes that had had refractive surgery before. He published an article in Ophthalmology (1997) on the harmful role of ultraviolet exposure in eyes with previous photorefractive keratectomy during the avascular corneal healing. Afterward he did a fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, England.

Dr. Nagy is a dedicated anterior segment surgeon. In 2008, he performed the first femtosecond laser cataract surgery in a human eye. His scientific contribution was awarded with the Waring Prize in 2010 in New York. In 2012, he received the Casebeer Prize from the International Society of Refractive Surgery, among numerous other awards. He and his co-workers published more than 20 peer-reviewed articles in the field of femtolaser-assisted cataract surgery. He receives invitations for live surgery events as a surgeon and presenter during international congresses. Presently he serves as Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Semmelweis University.
