Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: The second edition of this book, like its predecessor, is a succinct compilation of the eximer laser experiences of three Canadian ophthalmologists.
Purpose: The authors state that the book is intended to provide the basic and clinical information for general ophthalmologists who might be planning to begin performing excimer laser surgery. The book provides moderate details in this important area but is not as detailed as other texts on the subject.
Audience: This book is designed for reading by the general ophthalmologist with an interest in excimer laser surgery. The authors have extensive experience and their results comprise an impressive portion of the North American experience with these lasers and techniques.
Features: The illustrations are somewhat rudimentary and the legends are not very detailed, so unfortunately their educational impact is not great. While there is a bibliography at the end of the book, the chapters are not referenced. The bibliography is current through 1996, but the reader is cautioned that a considerable amount of new material has entered the literature since that time. The book is attractively priced.
Assessment: The second edition adds information on the newest excimer laser technique, laser assisted in situ keratormileusis, and serves as a good introduction to excimer laser keratorefractive surgery.
