Optimizing Suboptimal Results Following Cataract Surgery

Despite vast improvements in both surgical skills and surgical equipment, cataract surgery doesn’t always go as planned. However, there’s usually a way to fix whatever went wrong. But how?
“Optimizing Suboptimal Results Following Cataract Surgery: Refractive and Non-Refractive Management” (Thieme), edited by Priya Narang and William B. Trattler, aims to answer this question. It focuses not only on the dramatic problems like toxic anterior segment syndrome, endophthalmitis and bullous keratopathy, but also on how to approach tear film disorders, residual refractive error and everything in between. This includes refractive enhancement procedures of every stripe.
This concise book is intended for anyone who operates cataracts, as well as those of us to whom complications are sent.
