MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE: NEW: : DESCRIPTION: 186 Pages: Slack Inc (April 1994) : This book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations. ... : This book offers an introduction and overview into the theory and practice of the surgical treatment of astigmatism. In accomplishing this, the book takes several different approaches, ranging from updates of national multicenter trials to reviews of case studies demonstrating specifically how an author approaches a common problem. The purpose is to discuss some of the currently available methods of correcting astigmatism. Because so much experience has recently been gained in this area, it is a worthy objective mainly from the standpoint of assimilating much of this experience into a convenient single source. It more than adequately achieves this objective by first providing to the reader the history and evolution of astigmatism-reducting procedures, and then by providing an overview of each major procedure type. The book is intended for residents in ophthalmology. It would be equally useful for any practitioner considering modifying a practice to include these types of procedures. The multiple authors are quite credible and have generally published widely in this and related fields. The photographs, particularly the intraoperative shots, are very helpful. The book is somewhat overillustrated, however, especially in the inclusion of numerous corneal topography photos that often add little to the case reports. Also, many of the graphs are confusing and unnecessary in getting the point across. This book is quite useful. Although this area of ophthalmology has received considerable attention, these procedures are not routinely performed by many residents and practitioners. This book presents a fairly concise overview of the types of procedures that are being performed and objectivelyrelays surgical outcomes along with opinions on appropriateness of various procedures in specific situations.
