Phakic intraocular lenses are innovative devices that provide the ability to correct extreme levels of myopia, nearsightedness, and astigmatism that other modalities have been unsuccessful correcting.

As these devices are increasingly gaining popularity internationally, it has become equally important for a reference to come forward that explains their capabilities.

Drs. David R. Hardten, Richard L. Lindstrom, and Elizabeth A. Davis have collaborated with an array of experts to produce Phakic Intraocular Lenses: Principles and Practice, a dynamic text concerning one of the newest frontiers in refractive surgery. This well-referenced text includes multiple styles of intraocular lenses and locations of implantation, as well as results, complications, and optics.

The authors utilize a comprehensive, user-friendly format coupled with excellent illustrations to thoroughly explain this emerging topic. An impressive list of contributors provides professional insight into everything there is to know about phakic intraocular lenses.
