Keratoplasty is the transplantation of all or part of the cornea to repair scarred or damaged tissue. A femtosecond laser is a laser which emits ultrashort pulses, used for minimally invasive corneal surgery.
This book is a concise guide to the technique of femtosecond laser-assisted keratoplasty. Beginning with an introduction to the technology, the following chapters discuss its use for different disorders.
This practical text is based on the surgical experience of its internationally recognised authors from Spain, Germany, France and the USA. It includes more than 230 full colour clinical photographs and illustrations to enhance learning.
· Concise guide to the corneal transplantation procedure of femtosecond
