Ophthalmic surgery technology has undergone rapid advancements and innovations in last two decades. From modest and conventional surgical techniques in early eighties, now it has become high-tech surgery with least indoor stay and excellent visual outcomes. Microincision surgery in both anterior and posterior segments, corneal and lenticular refractive surgery, modern keratoplasty techniques, pediatric and strabismus surgery, oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery and stem cell transplantation have entirely changed the scenario in ophthalmic surgery today. Modern ophthalmic surgery is a vast subject. It is important for ophthalmologists to master various surgical steps in the ophthalmic surgery procedures of their interest. There are very few quality international Surgical Techniques in Ophthalmic book which can teach and guide the ophthalmologists to master various surgical techniques properly. Keeping in view of this factor, we have conceptualized the present series of Surgical Techniques in Ophthalmology which shall contain eight volumes. These volumes shall cover all aspects of ophthalmic surgery in a comprehensive and easy-to-read format. These volumes shall focus on especially Cataract Surgery, Refractive Surgery, Oculoplasty and Reconstructive Surgery, Corneal Surgery, Glaucoma Surgery, Retinal Surgery, Strabismus Surgery, and Pediatric Ophthalmic Surgery. A panel of International Eminent Ophthalmologists are contributing chapters in these volumes for the benefit of ophthalmologists worldwide. The clinically significant topics of pediatric ophthalmic surgery related to anterior and posterior segments have been included in this volume. Both conventional and high-tech surgeries specially related to Pediatric Cataract Surgery, Corneal Surgery, Strabismus Surgery, Glaucoma Surgery, Oculoplasty Surgery, Retinal Surgery and Pediatric Refractive Surgery are special features of this volume.
