“Complications in Corneal Laser Surgery” is a comprehensive reference book edited by Stephan J. Linke and Toam Katz, both experienced ophthalmologists. The book focuses on the potential complications that can arise during and after corneal laser surgery, which is a common procedure used to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

The book is organized into 23 chapters, each of which covers a specific complication or group of complications. The chapters are written by experts in the field and provide detailed information on the incidence, risk factors, diagnosis, management, and prevention of each complication.

The first few chapters of the book provide an overview of the principles of corneal laser surgery, including the different types of lasers used, patient selection, and preoperative evaluation. The subsequent chapters cover specific complications such as dry eye, corneal ectasia, flap complications, infection, and visual aberrations.

In addition to covering complications that are commonly encountered in corneal laser surgery, the book also includes discussions on less frequent complications, such as central toxic keratopathy and corneal perforation. The final chapters of the book focus on the management of complications and the use of advanced technologies such as femtosecond lasers and wavefront-guided ablation.

Overall, “Complications in Corneal Laser Surgery” is a valuable resource for ophthalmologists, residents, and fellows who perform corneal laser surgery. It provides a detailed and up-to-date understanding of potential complications, their management, and how to prevent them.
