Quality of vision; essential optics for the cataract and refractive surgeon.


Quality of vision; essential optics for the cataract and refractive surgeon.

Holladay, Jack T.

Slack Inc.


134 pages




Going far beyond the quality of vision indicated by Snellen testing, Holladay (ophthalmology, Baylor College of Medicine) helps surgeons better understand the machinery, instruments, technology and procedures commonly used to assess vision before and after cataract and refractive surgery, and designs this to be a daily handbook as well as a desk reference. He introduces basic optics, then describes performing astigmatism analysis, administering aspheric treatments that reduce spherical aberration after surgery, making calculations for vertex distance and refraction as well as intraocular lens power, performing intraocular lens calculations after surgery, correcting presbyopia surgically, understanding recent optical improvements in excimer laser surgery and getting ready for more, working with Zernike and Fourier polynomials, learning to use the concepts of ocular and topographic wavefront, and using neural adaptation to correct vision.
