Ophthalmic Surgical Instruments

by Jeewan S Titiyal, Rajesh Sinha, Vijay Kumar Sharma

The aim of this book is to focus on the ophthalmic surgical instruments. Ophthalmic surgery is evolving at a rapid pace with the introduction of newer techniques and technology. Various newer surgical instruments are being added to the ever-expanding kit of the ophthalmologists. This book provides comprehensive description and colored photographs about the instruments used in various ophthalmic surgeries, including those being used in cornea and refractive surgery, retinal surgeries, squint and oculoplastic surgeries, glaucoma surgery, cataract and femtocataract surgery as well as sterilization techniques of these instruments. Each chapter is devoted to surgical instruments used in a particular subspecialty of ophthalmology. Original photographs of good quality with a similar background in majority of the chapters have been used not only to maintain uniformity but also to provide crisp visuals of each instrument. This book will not only help the undergraduate and postgraduate students but also the young practitioners who are planning to establish their own set-up, as they get a sort of checklist for the instruments that they have to purchase as well as an accurate information about their exact uses.
