This material has been updated to include modern small incision surgery and foldable lens technology, which has greatly expanded since 1989 and is now the preferred cataract surgical procedure of most ophthalmologists. This book continues to be the only text available which covers the pathology of cataract surgery and intraocular lenses. A new chapter has been added which represents the first comprehensive publication on clinicopathological correlation of refractive surgery, including incisional refractive surgery (RK), refractive surgery with lasers (PRK and LASIK), and refractive intraocular lenses. The information is based on the extensive experience of Dr. Apple's laboratory at the Storm Eye Institute in Charleston. The material and illustrations in this chapter have never been published elsewhere. There has been extensive update of references of all topics in the book.
