Description détaillée : The Art of Refractive Cataract Surgery

Significant advances in IOL technology and techniques have been made in the last two decades. Concurrently, this has given rise to a growing desire among cataract patients to correct preexisting refractive errors with the goal of reducing or eliminating reliance on glasses/contact lenses.

Recent surveys have shown that ophthalmology residents and many practicing cataract surgeons receive inadequate training in RCS, including astigmatism and presbyopia correction.

The Art of Refractive Cataract Surgery: For Residents, Fellows, and Beginners edited by renowned cataract experts Fuxiang Zhang, Alan Sugar, and Lisa Brothers Arbisser fills a gap in the literature.


What is the content of "The Art of Refractive Cataract Surgery" ?

This the first book specifically written for students, with uniquely focused chapters based on residents' and junior colleagues' questions and refined by their real feedback. Featuring contributions from a carefully curated team of distinguished refractive cataract surgeons, this reader-friendly book provides expert insights on essential principles and how-to surgical guidance for diverse types of premium IOLs.

Clearly-defined basic and fundamental knowledge and applications provide ample inspiration for trainees and early-career refractive cataract surgeons to ford the challenging river of learning curves. Each premium IOL chapter includes candidate selection criteria, contraindications, and evidence-based pearls to inform surgical decision-making, prevent complications, and improve patient outcomes.

Key Highlights

  • Twenty-three chapters cover a full spectrum of contemporary refractive cataract surgery topics, including Topography/LRI/Toric/MFIOL/EDOF/Trifocal/Monovision/Piggyback/ORA/FLACS
