"The topic of the second volume of the series in "Essentials in Ophthalmology" is cataract and refractive surgery, a realm of ophthalmic care that has undergone revolutionary changes in the past 10 years. Worldwide, the removal of the opaque crystalline lens is the most frequently performed surgical intervention in the human body, and refractive surgery encompasses an increasing array of procedures with rapidly growing surgical volumes. The goal of the editors of this book has been to provide up-to-date clinically relevant overviews and to highlight the most interesting fields of research and controversy.The first half of the book focuses on new cataract surgical techniques and devices, including topical anaesthesia, small incision cataract surgery, modern intraocular lenses and ophthalmic viscosurgical devices. Special attention is devoted to difficult situations, such as mature, uveitic and pediatric cataracts, and to the prevention and management of complications.The second half of the book describes current and evolving modalities - both corneal and lenticular - to correct human refractive errors. Particular emphasis is placed on topics related to quality of vision, such as wavefront technology, measuring quality of vision, and issues in pupil measurement. Many of these topics pertain also to cataract surgery, indicating the merging of technologies that is occurring in these two major ophthalmic subspecialties. TOC:Cataract Surgery: Topical and intracameral anaesthesia for cataract surgery; Surgical techniques for small incision cataract surgery; Ophthalmic viscoelastic devices (OVD); Foldable intraocular lenses; "Accommodative" intraocular lenses; Prevention of posterior capsular opacification; Management of mature cataract; The treatment of uveitic cataracts; Pediatric cataract surgery; Prevention and treatment of postcataract surgery infection.- Refractive Surgery: Future trends in refractive surgery; LASIK - Laser in situ Keratomileusis; LASEK vs PRK.- Refractive keratotomy: Does it have a future role in refractive surgery?; Phakic intraocular lenses; Refractive lens exchange; The concept of wavefront-guided corneal surgery; The pupil and refractive surgery; Quality of vision after refractive surgery."
