This book deals specifically with the geometrical and physical principles which are the basis of modern eye surgery. These basic principles induce a way of surgical thinking that is valuable for the understanding of different technical approaches, for the development of new methods, and for the management of unusual situations. Thus, this book differs from the many books describing specific surgical methods in that it shows not what to do, but how to do it. The how-to approach is intended to help the beginning surgeon. The second English edition has been revised to reflect the enormous developments in eye surgery during the last decade. All chapters have been rewritten, and there are new insights on corneal suturing, trephination and iris reconstruction. Several new chapters have been added covering space tactical problems and solutions, the basics of hydraulic systems and viscosurgical principles. Extracapsular cataract surgery and pharcoemulsification as well as anterior vitreous surgery are dealt with extensively and are presented in a novel way.
