Over the past ten years tremendous progress has been achieved in corneal surgery.
This volume – the 6th in the 'ESASO Course Series' – reflects the
most relevant topics ranging from basic knowledge to the most advanced techniques.
It covers the functional anatomy with medical and surgical management of the
ocular surface, provides information on high-risk corneal transplantation and
explains techniques such as corneal collagen crosslinking, femtosecond laser-assisted
penetrating, deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and descemet membrane
endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). Further contributions describe how to manage
astigmatism after corneal transplantation as well as indications of intrastroma
corneal ring segments (ICRS) in keratoconus.
Well-known corneal and ocular surface surgeons and refractive surgery specialists share their experience in this publication, making it a must-read for every anterior segment surgeon, especially those performing corneal surgery and using corneal refractive procedures.
