Elevation based topography (or Tomography) is a new and comprehensive way of looking to the cornea, its structure, shape and performance. It is the authors belief, ..., that cross-sectional Scheimpflug analysis offers significant advantages in treatment, diagnosis and patients' safety".

The main focus was given to screen patients for refractive surgery, the interpretation of elevation maps, corneal thickness maps and its progression analysis. Drs. Belin & Khachikian present the topic in an orderly, systematic method ,that starts with the basics and progresses to understanding complex cases. The book is extensively illustrated with generous use of color. This masterpiece should serve as a basic text for any refractive surgeon interested in understanding modern topography.
