Good vision is more than 20/20 on a Snellen visual acuity chart. The modern ophthalmologist understands that contrast sensitivity, near and distance vision, performance under light and dark conditions, and the brain’s interpretation of input from the sensory apparatus, are all important elements in patients’ quality of vision. In Quality of Vision: Essential Optics for the Ophthalmic Surgeon, ophthalmologist and optics expert Dr. Jack T. Holladay explores the elements of vision that lie beyond Snellen testing. He explains the “whys” behind the machinery, instruments, technology, and procedures commonly used to assess vision before and after cataract and refractive surgery. With a better understanding of these tools, ophthalmologists can deliver better vision for their cataract and refractive surgery patients. Quality of Vision addresses: • Measuring and treating astigmatism in corneal and IOL surgery • The importance of correcting spherical aberration in cataract and refractive surgery • IOL calculations after refractive surgery • Promising approaches to the correction of presbyopia • Other practical topics the clinician can use every day Recognized as the leader in ophthalmic optics, Dr. Holladay incorporates practical aspects of daily practice into each chapter as he expertly explains the scientific principles, mathematical formulas, and theories behind these important issues. Additionally, Quality of Vision includes numerous color illustrations to provide visual representations of the text’s key points. Dr. Holladay discusses what’s on everyone’s mind: • How to take the best measurements and perform the best calculations to ensure good outcomes in cataract and refractive surgery • How neural adaptation can improve outcomes • How today’s excimer laser systems deliver excellent optical correction, and why tomorrow’s systems will perform even better Quality of Vision: Essential Optics for the Ophthalmic Surgeon is the most complete and practical reference for ophthalmologists looking to increase their understanding of optical physics and their ability to deliver good vision to their patients after cataract and refractive surgery.

Since the advent of keratorefractive surgery and its rising popularity, irregular astigmatism has become an increasingly important issue for ophthalmologists and optometrists. Despite the success of LASIK and PRK, there are more and more patients experiencing visual quality problems due to the non-physiological modification of the corneal structure. Among these complications, irregular astigmatism is perhaps the most difficult to treat. Every physician who performs keratorefractive surgery understands that in reducing a patient.s refractive error, there is a possibility of creating irreversible effects on visual quality. This text is intended to help prevent and reduce the iatrogenic creation of irregular astigmatism, as well as provide effective treatment when postoperative complications do arise. With the maturation of keratorefractive technology in recent years, effective treatment for iatrogenic irregular astigmatism is quickly developing. It provides everything refractive surgeons, ophthalmologists, and optometrists need to know about this important topic.

This text is for anyone interested in the use of Botox and dermal filler agents for a wide variety of functional and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures. The storage, reconstitution, and mechanism of action of botulinum toxin or Botox are all thoroughly explained. A thorough analysis is provided detailing the underlying facial muscle anatomy that is required and how physicians can integrate this procedure into their current practice. An additional section is also included detailing injectable filler agents, a more effective form of treatment for lines that are present at rest. As the demand for less invasive facial rejuvenation products and treatments continue to increase, Botox injections are emerging as the popular choice. While the initial public reaction was guarded, the procedure is now common, as millions of individuals around the world are pursuing the cosmetic application of Botox for wrinkle reduction. The text utilizes a "how to" approach in teaching the ways Botox can remedy many functional disorders and conditions.
