About this book

Introduction

How can one best master a rupture of the posterior capsule during cataract surgery? How should one operate on a dropped nucleus? What is the ideal management for a subluxated intraocular lens? If you are seeking answers to these and similar questions, then this is the book for you.

 

Every surgeon is afraid of complications, but while complications cannot be entirely avoided, it is possible to learn to master them. This practical handbook clearly explains how to manage the various complications that may arise during cataract surgery. It provides the surgeon with clear instructions on how best to proceed in the manner of a cookbook, by first describing the ingredients (equipment) and preparation (planning) and then providing step by step descriptions of technique with the aid of numerous helpful color illustrations and several accompanying surgical videos. Surgical pearls and pitfalls are highlighted. Using this book, the reader will become a better and more complete cataract surgeon, well equipped to cope with the full range of potential complications.
