Henderson (ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School) and Gills (ophthalmology, U. of South Florida) offer cataract and refractive surgeons a resource for diagnosing and managing corneal astigmatism. They bring together ophthalmologists from the US, South America, and Europe in 27 chapters that address all surgical methods for correcting astigmatism, including corneal incisional surgery, laser refractive surgery, and new intraocular toric lenses, and in this edition, the management of irregular corneal astigmatism and corneal thinning. It also has information on diagnosis, new technology and innovative techniques, approach and timing of surgical correction, astigmatism by laser keratectomy, intraocular lens calculations with previous refractive surgery, marking alignment instrumentation, and new intraocular lenses not yet available in the US.
