Doody ReviewsReviewer: Steven A. Nissman, MD (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine)
Description: This excellent how-to manual for microincisional cataract surgery is very up-to-date and includes almost all the currently available technology.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the evolution, techniques, and machines used in modern day microincision cataract surgery (MICS). These objectives are certainly met. Many surgeons have not yet adopted MICS, and this book is an excellent reference for those considering it as well as a helpful and educational resource for those already using it.
Audience: It is targeted at experienced practicing cataract surgeons but also would be helpful to residents or newer surgeons. The editors and authors are highly respected in the field.
Features: An excellent review of the evolution of modern day phacoemulsification cataract surgery and the advances that have helped to streamline it begins the book. The majority of the rest of the book details specifics of MICS. The introductory sections are outstanding for both training and experienced surgeons. The MICS chapters are helpful for both those who are using or want to start using this technique, but they are not as universally helpful as the introduction.
Assessment: This book focuses on a new and evolving surgical technique. However, there are very few books on MICS and this may be the most current and complete currently available.
