A wordless picture book presents a series of scenes, each one from farther away, showing, for example, a boat which becomes the image on a magazine, which is held in a hand, which belongs to a boy, and so on.

The IOL technical specifications, the clinical data, and the necessary clinical and surgical skills comprise the scientific foundation for achieving a "premium" refractive outcome. To consistently achieve patient satisfaction, however, requires mastering the art of patient and IOL selection, communicating and counseling effectively, and providing a "premium" patient experience. This is a nontraditional book in which multiple experts are separately asked to discuss controversial subjects in a reader-friendly format. There is balanced coverage of all of the available refractive IOLs, as well as those that may become available in the near future. A major emphasis is placed on avoiding and managing complications or potentially dissatisfied patients. There are more than 200 chapters that are organized into 14 major sections, over 300 images, 100 tables, and 12 sidebars that cover every aspect of refractive IOL clinical practice. This is a comprehensive educational resource addressing the most demanding and rapidly evolving area in cataract and refractive surgery today and the first book to cover both the clinical and nonclinical aspects of offering refractive IOL services.
