Laser: Its Clinical Uses in Eye Diseases
Send to friend
This is a practical volume which describes how to use a variety of lasers to treat a range of eye diseases. It discusses which laser to use, the pros and cons, safety rules, and includes practical exercises. Ophthalmic surgeons are relying increasingly on different lasers to treat the major ocular conditions and this edition has been rewritten to cover developments made in the fast-growing area since the first edition was published. It contains 242 illustrations, most in full colour, in order to show detail. For this edition 112 illustrations are new. Both authors have experience in this fast-developing, technical area of ophthalmology and there are four new chapters covering: the principles of YAG and excimer lasers, the use of YAG for posterior capsulotomy, laser treatment of glaucoma, and the use of lasers for age-related maculopathy.
