Here's the New Edition of the reference lauded by Archives of Ophthalmology as one of the One Hundred Important Ophthalmology Books of the 20th Century! Three internationally renowned editors and over 250 distinguished contributors explore all of the important discoveries and advances that are changing the practice of ophthalmology. They discuss the genetic, molecular biologic, biochemical and immunological findings that are leading to a better understanding of corneal dystrophies, allergic kerato-conjunctivitis, dry eye conditions, and many other corneal and external eye diseases. Their in-depth, clinically focused coverage describes today's new approaches to treating ocular surface diseases and details the dramatic changes occurring in the field of refractive surgery. An accompanying DVD features all of the more than 2,300 superb illustrations from the book, downloadable for electronic presentations, as well as video clips, narrated by the authors, that demonstrate important diagnostic and surgical procedures.

  • Examines every facet of the field with an emphasis on clinical practice.

  • Includes thoroughly revised and significantly expanded coverage of all of the advances in refractive surgery, including LASIK, LASEK, intrastromal corneal rings, phakic myopic intraocular lenses, conductive and thermal kerotoplasty, wavefront theory and its applications, and the surgical techniques of the future.
