Book Description

For ophthalmologists who are already using femtosecond lasers as well as those just starting out who are looking for the definitive reference manual, Femtosecond Lasers in Cornea and Lens Surgery is a comprehensive, cutting-edge guide to this technology that features a robust supplemental website with nearly 40 surgical videos.

With the advent of small incision lenticule extraction, pockets and channels for corneal inlays and ring segments, femtosecond lasers for corneal surgery have advanced significantly over the past several decades, and ophthalmologists are looking for expert guidance on their acquisition, utilization, and optimization. With contributions from world-renowned surgeons who have seen the benefit of integrating femtosecond laser technology into their practices, this text reviews the practical aspects of femtosecond technology and also addresses the future of this quickly evolving space.

Drs. George O. Waring, IV and Karolinne Maia Rocha lead their team of more than 50 expert contributors in providing a thorough, definitive text summarizing all aspects of femtosecond lasers for corneal and lens surgery in a balanced and commercially unbiased manner. All of the major platforms and systems are covered in chapters including:
  • Integration of Femtosecond Laser–Assisted Cataract Surgery Into Your Practice
  • Therapeutic Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery 
  • Complications of Femtosecond LASIK 
  • Small Incision Lenticule Extraction 
  • Femtosecond Laser Pockets for Corneal Inlays 
  • Use of Femtosecond Lasers in Keratoplasty 
For a comprehensive resource on the use of femtosecond lasers in cornea and lens surgery, as well as unbiased opinions from expert contributors on the various procedures and platforms, Femtosecond Lasers in Cornea and Lens Surgery is a must-have for ophthalmologists wishing to stay on top of this evolving field.
