Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a description of the history, instrumentation, techniques, results, and complications of automated lamellar keratoplasty (ARK) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), authored by three pioneers in these fields.
Purpose: The authors have sought to introduce these techniques and the rationale for their systematic approaches to the procedures. They recognize the high interest among ophthalmologists regarding performance of these procedures and seek to minimize the problems associated with an individual's learning curve by providing detailed instructions and nomograms as well as approaches that are sensible and more predictable.
Audience: This book should be carefully studied by any ophthalmologist who is contemplating using these techniques. Residents in ophthalmology will find this a good book for gaining knowledge about refractive surgery. The authors have extensive experience in this field and provide insight based upon vast experience and careful studies.
Features: The text is richly supported by color photographs and labeled drawings. Important points are highlighted within a gray background. Chapters have some references and the table of contents and index are reasonable. There is a helpful glossary and samples of various surgical forms.
Assessment: This is an excellent book for gaining an understanding of ARK and LASIK and the background that led to their development. An ophthalmologist who diligently studies this book will be in a good position to take the courses of instruction for ARK and LASIK.
