Summary "Surface ablation requires careful counseling due to the longer recovery, but with Surface Ablation: Techniques for Optimum Results, refractive surgeons will learn efficient pre- and post-op routines that optimize chair time and lead to improved safety and excellent results for patients. Surface Ablation: Techniques for Optimum Results by Dr. Ellen Anderson Penno is joined by 9 contributors who offer a practical approach with clinically useful tips including patient counseling and post-operative care that will improve patient satisfaction. This up-to-date book is an excellent resource for patient assessment of candidacy for refractive surgery or in post-operative co-management. In addition to chapters with information on patient selection, surgical techniques, post-op care, and prevention and management of complications, Surface Ablation: Techniques for Optimum Results includes several articles, contributed by leaders in the refractive surgery field, covering a variety of topics including surface ablation in keratoconus patients, corneal cross-linking, and ectasia. Surface Ablation: Techniques for Optimum Results is a clinically-oriented resource for residents and new refractive surgeons as well as the many seasoned refractive surgeons, general ophthalmologists following the increasing trend of transitioning away from LASIK towards surface ablation for many of their patients.
