Item description for Aberration-Free Refractive Surgery: New Frontiers in Vision (Advanced Texts in Physics) by Josef F. Bille...
In recent years, new surgical techniques have evolved for customized correction of refractive disorders, based on groundbreaking achievements in objective assessment of refractive properties of the human eye and greatly refined excimer laser surgical vision correction systems. This well-illustrated book presents the underlying optical and laser-technological principles as well as the first clinical studies for Wavefront-quided LASIK-ablations. Chapters detail techniques and clinical results for the latest advances in wavefront technology, e.g., WaveScanTM , VISX STAR S3 TM ActiveTrak TM Eye Tracker, photorefractive keratectomy, and ultra-short pulse femtosecond laser surgery. An appendix contains a report on the status of clinical VISX US-FDA study on customs ablations ("one-step"-wavefront-guided LASIK TM). This is the first book to comprehensively report on sight correction through laser surgery.
