It includes discussions on mapping the profile of refraction of the whole eye through wavefront sensing devices. It also identifies aberrations in the entire optical system and not only the corneal surface. The present challenge is how to correct these aberrations by providing a distinctive laser treatment plan for each eye, like matching a finger print. In this volume, very prestigious refractive surgeons present their concepts and experiences on how to link diagnostic information obtained from wavefront analysis and corneal topography to the excimer laser treatment. They also identify the sophisticated equipment being made available for this purpose. With this Volume you will receive the most updated information about the present state of the art of refractive surgery with Lasik and take a good look beyond conventional Lasik.
