Overview

For both surgeon and patient alike, the success of modern implant surgery is increasingly judged by the refractive and astigmatic outcome. In spite of this, there has not yet been a practical book that addresses the process of performing limbal relaxing incisions (LRIs). Dr. Louis D. “Skip” Nichamin and his contributors aim to fill this void with Limbal Relaxing Incisions: A Practical Guide. Limbal Relaxing Incisions serves as a guide for novice refractive implant surgeons looking to incorporate incisional astigmatism surgery into their repertoire. It also contains practical pearls that the more experienced practitioner can use to refine astigmatic refractive outcomes following lens-based surgery. Limbal Relaxing Incisions covers a wide range of information from the history, background, and future of astigmatism management, to important subjects such as measuring cylinder and strategic planning for the surgical correction of astigmatism. Dr. Nichamin and his contributors detail their personal approaches to the use of LRIs, each presenting a slightly different technique and providing simple clinical pearls for both the novice and experienced practitioner. Residents in ophthalmology, comprehensive ophthalmologists, refractive cataract surgeons, and keratorefractive surgeons taking up lens-based refractive surgery will appreciate the “this is how I do it” approach in Limbal Relaxing Incisions: A Practical Guide, as well as the emphasis on clinical pearls, written by some of the most experienced refractive cataract surgeons in the field.
