Expert Techniques in Ophthalmic Surgery

by Myron Yanoff, Parul Ichhpujani, George L Spaeth

The aim of this book is to focus on the expert techniques in ophthalmic surgery. Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. This book comprised of 10 sections which include basic principles of ophthalmic surgeries, cataract surgeries, corneal surgeries, vitreoretinal surgeries, glaucoma surgeries, oculoplastic, orbital and lacrimal surgeries, oncology surgeries, extraocular muscle surgeries, open globe injuries, and the practice of ophthalmic surgery, which are further divided into 115 chapters. This volume is a comprehensive textbook–atlas. It has a highly visual format that includes illustrations and images, as well as features that align with current ophthalmology training. The content has been organized in such a way to facilitate quick access of information, with abundant bullet point lists and boxes, and fewer denser passages of text than found in a traditional textbook. Each section is color-coded for easy cross-referencing and “navigation”. In all the sections, operative techniques and surgical strategies are explained step-by-step to increase surgical knowledge and anatomy. A section on ethics and medicolegal aspects of surgical practice is an additional highlight of the book. Expert Techniques in Ophthalmic Surgery provides comprehensive coverage of eye surgery for ophthalmologists in training and in practice.
