Refractive surgeons and clinicians are searching for a more customized approach to refractive surgery. This comprehensive report on sight correction through laser surgery provides the practitioner with solid background information from top industry researchers. Carefully illustrated, it details the latest techniques and clinical results in wavefront technology for laser surgery, which is now defining a new standard of practice. This second edition has been significantly expanded to include in-depth descriptions of important new advances as well as glimpses of what the future holds. The book will be indispensable to all wishing to extend their knowledge of customized refractive surgery with an understanding of the underpinning technology
