Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive snapshot of the current status of a technique for cataract surgery. First Buratto examines the procedure, addressing physical principles, incisions. IOLs, viscoelastic substances, complications, and other aspects. Then 27 specialist surgeons discuss at length their particular approaches to the procedure, and the specific knowledge and techniques they incorporate into the operation. Among their topics are intraocular solutions and drugs, the limbal incision, modified phaco and mini chop, the in-situ phaco fracture technique, bimanual irrigation and aspiration, and folding manipulations and the optical quality of soft acrylic intraocular lenses. Includes over 800 drawings and photographs, most in color. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
