The LASIK Handbook: A Case-Based Approach focuses on the approach to the patient and the planning of surgery rather than the technology. The beginning refractive surgeon is led through a series of cases in a progression from simple to more complex decision-making. Surgical planning and management of complications are taught in a manner that is commonly used in contemporary medical student training--providing cases that mimic real-world situations. New to this edition are more than 25 new cases to bring the total to over 100. A companion website provides surgical videos and an interactive online question bank for self-assessment. All chapters are completely updated, and new separate chapters have been on the new technologies in corneal topography, mechanical microkeratomes, femtosecond lasers, and excimer lasers; and International Perspectives.
