This small handbook is a encapsulated description of the rationale, technique, and results of scleral expansion surgery for the treatment of presbyopia, based on the novel theory of the accommodative mechanism described by Dr Schachar. The theory has been discussed extensively in recent publications. In the text, the theory is summarized and well illustrated, and extensive outcome data are provided. Anyone interested in the subject and the technique will want this booklet on hand.
