- (2018; 1st Edition)Optimizing Suboptimal Results Following Cataract SurgeryShow details
A concise review and comprehensive guide to improving cataract surgery outcomes
Significant advances have been made in refractive surgery in the last decade. Eye surgeons today can leverage many cutting-edge intraocular lens (IOL) technologies such as multifocal, extended depth of field, toric, accommodating, and aspheric. Concurrent innovations including optics, phacoemulsification, superior keratometry and biometry, and posterior cornea evaluation have resulted in improved cataract surgery outcomes. Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cataracts have dramatically improved patient satisfaction following cataract surgery, yet common and rare complications still occur such as dry eye, endophthalmitis, and retinal detachment. Furthermore, only 80% of cataract surgery procedures bring patients to within 0.5 diopters of their needed refraction.
Optimizing Suboptimal Results Following Cataract Surgery: Refractive and Non-Refractive Management presents the latest techniques for achieving optimal results and overcoming complications in cataract surgery. Internationally renowned ophthalmic surgery pioneers Priya Narang and William Trattler have created an unparalleled guide to overcoming complex cases and residual refractive errors. The book starts with six chapters on suboptimal causes and considerations, followed by dedicated sections covering refractive and non-refractive enhancements. The fourth section features chapters on keratoconus, cystoid macular edema, endophthalmitis, toxic anterior segment syndrome, and vitritis, as well as intraoperative aberrometry, futuristic approaches and advancements, and telescopic IOLs.
Refractive enhancement procedures including corneal-based procedures such as astigmatic keratotomy, LASIK, PRK, and SMILE; IOL exchange; piggyback IOL; toric IOL; and premium IOLs and associated problems
Nonrefractive enhancement procedures including dysphotopsias and surgical management, bullous keratopathy and endothelial keratoplasty, complex IOL issues such as malpositioned IOL and capsular bag, and posterior capsular rupture and IOL lens implantation
Practical tips and steps to prevent and manage undesired outcomes
30 surgical videos posted online highlight a diverse array of complex cases and technical advances to help prevent suboptimal results

- (2017; 2nd Edition)Phacoemulsification and Intraocular Lens Implantation: Mastering Techniques and Complications in Cataract SurgeryShow details
Phacoemulsification, the gold standard for cataract extraction, is highly successful. However, the procedure is not without risks and complications. Poor visual outcome, retinal detachment, infection, diplopia, and cornea and iris problems may pose considerable challenges. Additional potential problems arise from implanting the intraocular lens (IOL).
Edited by a renowned master surgeon and educator in the field, and authored by a remarkable cast of cataract experts, this is the definitive text on managing cataract surgery, with practical guidance on recognizing and managing complications, should they arise. Experts demonstrate the right way to perform phacoemulsification and diverse surgical and intraocular lens implantation procedures in order to reduce risk and improve patient outcome.
This second edition is greatly expanded in size and scope to accommodate the latest state-of-the-art methodologies and refinements in surgical strategies. Since the first edition was published, new techniques for refractive cataract surgery, vitrectomy, IOL exchange, and management of IOL implantation without capsular bag support have been improved. Additionally, new technologies have been introduced such as optical coherence tomography, FLACS (femtosecond laser surgery), and implantation of toric and multifocal refractive IOLs, as well as methods to improve IOL power calculation and decision making.
