Although there are many recent books about excimer lasers, this book is unique because it focuses on the use of excimer lasers in the treatment of a wide variety of corneal diseases other than refractive disorders. As a bonus, a section in the book focuses on refractive laser complications and the use of phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) to manage these complications. The book is divided into 5 sections, and each section contains 2 to 5 succinct and well-referenced chapters.
