This book is an informative and comprehensive guide to the essential techniques currently employed in corneal surgery. It focuses in particular on two principal areas: the treatment of corneal disorders by means of different forms of corneal transplantation and use of the Excimer laser to treat refractive sight defects. In order to facilitate learning and later deployment of the techniques, a multimedia approach is used.
