"Special attention is devoted to topics related to quality of vision, such as wavefront technology and issues in pupil measurement. Many of these topics pertain also to cataract surgery, indicating the merging of technologies that is occurring in these two major ophthalmic subspecialties. This resource will help you to be on the forefront of new developments in the field."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Good vision is more than 20/20 on a Snellen visual acuity chart. The modern ophthalmologist understands that contrast sensitivity, near and distance vision, performance under light and dark conditions, and the brain’s interpretation of input from the sensory apparatus, are all important elements in patients’ quality of vision. In Quality of Vision: Essential Optics for the Ophthalmic Surgeon, ophthalmologist and optics expert Dr. Jack T. Holladay explores the elements of vision that lie beyond Snellen testing. He explains the “whys” behind the machinery, instruments, technology, and procedures commonly used to assess vision before and after cataract and refractive surgery. With a better understanding of these tools, ophthalmologists can deliver better vision for their cataract and refractive surgery patients. Quality of Vision addresses: • Measuring and treating astigmatism in corneal and IOL surgery • The importance of correcting spherical aberration in cataract and refractive surgery • IOL calculations after refractive surgery • Promising approaches to the correction of presbyopia • Other practical topics the clinician can use every day Recognized as the leader in ophthalmic optics, Dr. Holladay incorporates practical aspects of daily practice into each chapter as he expertly explains the scientific principles, mathematical formulas, and theories behind these important issues. Additionally, Quality of Vision includes numerous color illustrations to provide visual representations of the text’s key points. Dr. Holladay discusses what’s on everyone’s mind: • How to take the best measurements and perform the best calculations to ensure good outcomes in cataract and refractive surgery • How neural adaptation can improve outcomes • How today’s excimer laser systems deliver excellent optical correction, and why tomorrow’s systems will perform even better Quality of Vision: Essential Optics for the Ophthalmic Surgeon is the most complete and practical reference for ophthalmologists looking to increase their understanding of optical physics and their ability to deliver good vision to their patients after cataract and refractive surgery.

This medium sized text is intended to give the reader a readable comprehensive overview of all aspects of a cataract from its numerous perspectives, eg epidemiology, medicolegal aspects and Third World issues, in addition to providing an exposition of past, present and future surgical techniques for its removal. The book is a compilation of chapters provided by experienced surgeons and anaesthetists, epidemiologists, physicists and others involved in the management of the patient with cataract. Modern phakoemuslification techniques are described in detail and include basic physics or phakodynamics as well as the most common approaches or strategies for nuclear removal from soft cataracts to dense brunescent nuclear sclerosis. Wound construction is covered in some detail since this is perhaps one of the most important components of successful phakoemulsification. The refractive implications of wound construction are explained since an understanding of corneal changes in cataract surgery is essential when combined cataract and refractive surgery, which is now commonplace, is contemplated. There are chapters devoted to local anaesthetic techniques, the management of the diabetic patient, as well as other complex problems. A separate chapter is devoted to biometry and the problems of lens power calculations in patients having previously undergone corneal refractive surgery. Finally, future developments such as laser phako and accommodative lens implants are included.
