This book offers a unique approach not found in any other text for those who seek to improve the clinical outcomes of refractive surgery by obtaining a better understanding of corneal biomechanics and the related instrumentation. Written by leading experts in the field, this book provides authoritative coverage of the interactions between the cornea and bioinstrumentation, such as corneal topography, pachymetry, aberrometers, tonometry, and optical coherence tomography.

Organized in an easy-to-read manner, Corneal Biomechanics and Refractive Surgery is designed for refractive surgeons and general ophthalmologists alike. The book describes the biomechanical role of the corneal tissue and how each part is affected in refractive surgery. Additionally, the book explains what bioinstrumentation can measure, how models can improve the understanding of the interaction between biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, and refractive surgery, and how these models and bioinstrumentation can work together to improve refractive results.
