Ophthalmol Clin North Am. 2006 Mar;19(1):45-69, vi. doi: 10.1016/j.ohc.2005.10.006.


The authors present their detailed technique for the correction of presbyopia with pseudoaccommodative cornea laser in situ keratomileusis. A detailed commentary of the procedure is presented along with the authors' views about the present state and future of multifocal corneal surgery. Sample cases with suggested nomogram calculations are presented.
