Mastering Refractive IOLs: The Art and Science

Mastering Refractive IOLs: The Art and Science (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The availability of new presbyopia-correcting and toric IOLs along with the CMS ruling allowing Medicare patients to pay a premium to upgrade to them, has dramatically and permanently altered clinical practice for every cataract and refractive surgeon.Facing the challenge of educating patients about these options, as well as managing and meeting their expectations, today's clinicians more than ever need to share knowledge, experience, and advice with their ophthalmic colleagues.Dr. David F. Chang and his associate editors, Drs. Steven Dell, Warren Hill, Richard L. Lindstrom, and Kevin Waltz, have assembled a ""Who's Who"" team of more than 200 refractive IOL experts to create ""Mastering Refractive IOLs - The Art and Science"", a must-have book and reference for all cataract and refractive surgeons - whether you are already implanting a high volume of refractive IOLs or just starting to offer them.The IOL technical specifications, the clinical data, and the necessary clinical and surgical skills comprise the scientific foundation for achieving a ""premium"" refractive outcome.

To consistently achieve patient satisfaction, however, requires mastering the art of patient and IOL selection, communicating and counseling effectively, and providing a ""premium"" patient experience.This is a nontraditional book in which multiple experts are separately asked to discuss controversial subjects in a reader-friendly format. There is balanced coverage of all of the available refractive IOLs, as well as those that may become available in the near future. A major emphasis is placed on avoiding and managing complications or potentially dissatisfied patients.""Mastering Refractive IOLs - The Art and Science"" has more than 200 chapters that are organized into 14 major sections, over 300 images, 100 tables, and 12 sidebars that cover every aspect of refractive IOL clinical practice.Major sections include: Why Offer Premium IOLs; Transitioning to Presbyopia-Correcting IOLs; Transitioning to Presbyopia-Correcting IOLs: Quick Start guides; Presbyopia-Correcting IOLs today; Presbyopia-Correcting IOLs in the future; Refractive IOLs - Quality of Vision; Patient Selection & Education; Presbyopia-Correcting IOL Selection; Preoperative Ocular Assessment; Managing Astigmatism; Premium Cataract Surgery; Refractive Lens Exchange; Enhancements; and, Complications - Avoidance and Management.

""Mastering Refractive IOLs - The Art and Science"" is the most comprehensive educational resource addressing the most demanding and rapidly evolving area in cataract and refractive surgery today and the first book to cover both the clinical and nonclinical aspects of offering refractive IOL services.
