The editors of this monograph begin the book by asking, why do we need yet another book on cataract surgery? They answer that this book is different, since it anticipates the future by including chapters on laser photolysis, electromagnetic technique, and endocapsular vortex emulsification. Recent innovations in the design of intraocular lenses (IOLs) (multifocal and toric lenses) are the subjects of other chapters. The history of IOLs is described in a chapter beginning with the work of Harold Ridley in 1949. Other topics are the human lens, patient evaluation, classification of cataracts, phacoemulsification, surgical complications, astigmatism, and capsular tension rings.
