This is a futuristic kind of book on the resurgent advanced surface
ablations containing 64 chapters and covers all the known techniques in a
comprehensive manner. Leading international refractive surgeons share their
experiences in the book and state that ASA is more safe and stable than that of
first generation surface ablation performed with excimer laser. A video DVDRom
is also provided with the book showing step-by-step ASA surgical
techniques by international experts for the benefit of the practicing doctors and
viewers. It has been stated with authority that it leaves a structurally stronger
cornea than LASIK thus lower incidence of corneal ecstasia. ASA is certainly a
better procedure than LASIK for high myopia, atypical corneal topography,
inferior steeping steep central cornea and high oblique astigmatism. With the
advancement in the sphere of corneal biomechanics surface ablation for laser
vision correction once again increases its appeal. A resurgence of photo
refractive keratectomy technique, limits the structural alteration of the cornea.
Topography guided ablation for irregular corneal surfaces or wave front guided
ablation for correction of eye aberrations are indicators of the increasing
sophistications of the ablative process. The text is supported with DVD Video
Rom with reviews of the basic science of corneal ablations including biophysics
of thermal as well as non-thermal techniques. This in valuable contribution
will go a long way to guide surgeons to avoid pitfalls during their learning
stages. This book also explains the adjunctive methods like the role of
mitomycin C, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic medications to prevent adverse
effects. Corneal laser vision correction is common in so many aspects of medicine
and ophthalmology, and on this rapidly growing subject this volume provides
instant insights into the current status of surface corneal ablations. Surface and
near surface ablative techniques form the subject matter of this volume. The
collective experience of the world's leading laser vision correction surgeons
has been put together in this clinical ophthalmic textbook. It provides up-todate
information for the enlightenment of the readers so that it contributes to
the welfare of countless patients who undergo treatment for low and moderate
myopia, astigmatism and low hyperopia.
