The femtosecond laser has emerged as a groundbreaking game-changer in ophthalmic surgery. It was first introduced for corneal refractive surgery in flap creation during LASIK, and subsequently for cataract surgery in 2008. The femtosecond laser cuts deeply on a single plane without collateral damage. Its high precision and safety result in excellent outcomes in the hands of experienced eye surgeons, benefiting virtually everyone.
Femtosecond Laser Surgery in Ophthalmology fills an unmet need for a comprehensive, up-to-date resource on growing applications of this state-of-the-art technology. H Burkhard Dick is a world-renowned pioneer who has performed more than 6,000 laser cataract operations. Readers will benefit from his keen insights along with the collective expertise of co-authors Tim Schultz, Ronald D. Gerste, and a cadre of top-notch contributors. Twenty-nine chapters encompass basic physics, refractive and therapeutic cornea treatment, various aspects of laser cataract surgery, and patient selection.
