About the book

Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the world. Phacoemulsification plays a more and more important role in the current cataract surgical technique. However, there are still a large number of young surgeons who are still getting stuck at the basic step. Moreover, lots of fundamental concepts and skills are no longer being explained and addressed in current conferences. Thus, a careful and exact understanding of each step during the whole surgical procedure, including phacodynamics, incisions, continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis, hydrodissection, chopping techniques, cortical removal, IOL implantation, dealing with each step complications, is essential.

This book intends to provide the readers with a comprehensive knowledge of the current cataract surgical technique, especially for young cataract surgeons. The book will focus on the phacoemulsification techniques and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
