Presbyopia is a condition associated with aging, which makes it increasingly difficult for the eyes to focus on near objects. Presbyopia: Therapies and Further Prospects is a concise review of treatments and possible developments in the treatment of this condition.
Divided into four chapters, the book covers the principles of correction with glasses and contact lenses, as well as ocular surgeries. Surgical procedures such as conductive keratoplasty and LASIK are included, as well as accommodative (focus) restoration, such as intraocular lenses (IOLs).
Presbyopia: Therapies and Further Prospects has been written by Alain-Nicolas Gilg, medical director at the Wilson Eye Centre in Lyon, France – developer of clinical applications for contact lenses and a microintraocular device for presbyopic surgery. Nearly 100 full colour images and illustrations enhance this useful guide, which will keep ophthalmologists and optometrists up to date with the latest advances in the field.
