Chapter 1. Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking
Chapter 2. Femtosecond laser in refractive and cataract surgery
Chapter 3. Acknowledgments
“This book gives a deep understanding of new ophthalmic applications which are corneal crosslinking (CXL) and the femtosecond laser surgery. It is a great text book for PhD students or physicians who are interested in basic science. Detailed mechanism of action for both CXL as well as laser physics and tissue processing with ultra-short laser pulses are explained in a fundamental and professional way.” – Professor Holger Lubatschowski, PhD, ROWIAK GmbH, Hanover, Germany
“In this book, Professor Hui Sun gives a comprehensive review on corneal collagen cross-linking, femtosecond laser assisted LASIK surgery, and femtosecond-laser-assisted cataract surgery. A particular emphasis is given to elasticity measurement related to collagen cross-linking, safety about femtosecond laser flap creation, and new applications of femtosecond in cataract surgery. This book is an invaluable tool to those who are interested in LASIK surgery or femtosecond-laser-assisted cataract surgery.” – Dr. Bo Gu, SPIE fellow and OSA fellow, Founder/CTO, Bos Photonics, U.S.A.
Keywords: cornea; corneal collagen; cross-linking; femtosecond laser; refractive surgery; lens; cataract; cataract surgery.
Audience: The physical scientists who work at femtosecond laser cornea and lens tissue interaction, the scientists who work at OCT detection of cornea and lens, the surgeon who does femtosecond laser assisted LASIK surgery or femtosecond laser cataract surgery should be the potential authors for this special tissue and should be the reader too. In fact, anyone who will take the related surgery should have interest to read this tissue.
