Sinjab (ophthalmology, Damascus U., Syria) explains how to read the topography of the cornea and make correct clinical interpretations in order to make decisions in laser refractive surgery that lead to good results and avoid postoperative complications. Drawing from his own experience and that of others as well as the scientific and technical literature, he covers fundamentals of corneal topography using the Pentacam tomography technology, functional description, ectatic corneal diseases, points affecting the decision, and miscellaneous topics. Among changes from the 2009 first edition is a new chapter on cataract surgery.
