Although this monograph carries the label of Second Edition, it is an entirely new monograph that examines the modern and future practice of cararact surgery. It includes detailed descriptions of such novel modalities as laser photolysis, the electromagnetic technique, and endocapsular vortex emulsification. It also covers promising innovations in intraocular lenses-multifocal and toric IOLs-in the search for lenses that will solve the problem of accommodation. These new innovations are placed in a historical context through an appendix offering a glimpse at the often colorful history of IOLs. An overview of the fundamental topics underlying clinical practice-the anatomy and physiology of the crystalline lens, the evaluation of a patient for cataract surgery, and the classification of types of cataracts-makes this monograph a succinct yet comprehensive resource for practitioners.
