Hovanesian presents the complicated subject of premium cataract surgery in an approachable manner for all cataract surgeons looking to elevate their skill level and improve patient experience. Premium Cataract Surgery: A Step-by-Step Guide packages all aspects of premium surgery into a practical guide for eye surgeons who wish to take their practices to a new level by offering cataract patients refractive solutions, such as astigmatism and presbyopia correction. Both well-established and new techniques and implants are presented in chapters that are organized by topic and detailed step-by-step. Chapters cover every subject related to premium surgery, including how-to chapters on microincision technique, toric implants, limbal relaxing incisions, advanced monovision, multifocals, and accommodating lenses.
