Reduced spectacle dependence for distance, intermediate, and near vision is increasingly becoming a postoperative goal for both cataract and lens exchange patients. Presbyopic Lens Surgery: A Clinical Guide to Current Technology offers a refreshing look at this advancing topic and delivers expert information for achieving target refractive outcomes.

Drs. Elizabeth A. Davis, David R. Hardten, and Richard L. Lindstrom, along with contributions from recognized leaders, present the essentials of presbyopic lens surgery in an easy to understand format. This handy reference covers all you need to know about both refractive lens exchange and refractive cataract surgery and provides valuable pearls for preoperative assessment and measurements, choosing IOLs, IOL calculations, and postoperative care.

Inside Presbyopic Lens Surgery, readers are presented with a concise history of refractive lens surgery and a thorough overview of intraocular lens surgery. This user-friendly resource examines the principles and techniques of refractive cataract surgery and the features unique to this refractive procedure versus clear lens extraction. Sections on patient evaluation and counseling are included to maximize refractive goals. Additionally, detailed images highlight the text’s key points and provide visual representations of topics discussed, while references at the end of each chapter offer additional sources of information.

Some topics covered include:
• Currently available enhanced IOL technology
• Piggyback IOLs
• Surgical management of astigmatism
• The future of IOL technology
• Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ruling for Medicare beneficiaries
• Economics of refractive lens surgery

The comprehensive nature of this book combined with the most current technology to date and detailed information from experienced and authoritative contributors makes Presbyopic Lens Surgery: A Clinical Guide to Current Technology one of the most exciting and clinically relevant texts available and a must have for ophthalmologists, optometrists, residents, and cataract surgeons.
