Book Description

For general ophthalmologists looking to expand their surgical skillsets, anterior segment surgery specialists wishing to learn new techniques, and residents looking to separate themselves from the pack, Illustrated Advanced Anterior Segment Surgery: A Step-by-Step Guide for Challenging Cases is a must-have resource.

The book provides a wide range of advanced anterior segment surgery techniques, presented in a highly designed graphic style.

Editors Iqbal “Ike” Ahmed, Xavier Campos-Möller, Manjool Shah, and Arsham Sheybani have created a dynamic visual guide that emphasizes images and diagrams and includes step-by-step illustrations to help readers understand the optimal hand positions for certain surgical maneuvers.

Each chapter focuses on an individual technique, allowing readers to consult specific chapters as needed. There is significant emphasis on both foundational concepts and advanced surgical techniques, including:
  • Ergonomics, hand positioning, and instrument grips
  • How to insert and remove iris hooks
  • Capsulorhexis in the setting of weak zonules 
  • How to perform intrascleral haptic fixation of a three-piece IOL
  • How to repair an iridodialysis cleft
With its unique graphic approach and easily digestible format, Illustrated Advanced Anterior Segment Surgery: A Step-by-Step Guide for Challenging Cases will help surgeons take their skills to the next level and tackle some of the most challenging cases in anterior segment surgery.
