Designed as a video-based textbook of ophthalmic surgeries, "Video Atlas of Ophthalmic Surgeries" covers the entire spectrum of ocular surgeries, divided into Basic and Advanced editions. Both the Basic and Advanced editions are entirely video-based teaching products with high quality, narrated videos. With 116 videos, "Video Atlas of Advanced Ophthalmic Surgeries" contains nearly 10 hours of state of the art video teaching. Each video is edited in such a way that the viewer can quickly grasp all the relevant information without having to sit through extensive, unedited surgical videos. Each surgical video is accompanied with narration so that the viewer can watch and listen to each step during the surgery and learn by demonstrated example.
Some video sections and topics include: Oculoplasty and Orbit; Traumatic telecanthus repair, Superior rectus muscle biopsy, Lateral orbitotomy, and more; Conjunctiva and Cornea; Limbal stem cell transplantation, Mushroom PK, Artificial corneal transplant, and more; Refractive Surgery; Post LASIK ectasia, The LASIK flap buttonhole, Intacs with femtosecond laser, and more; Cataract and IOL; Bimanual torsional phacoemulsification, Posterior polar cataract, RK with cataract, and more; Glaucoma; Trabeculectomy ab interno by trabectome, Combined shunt procedure, Posterior chamber Ahmed valve and more; Pediatric Ophthalmology; Medial rectus adjustable suture, Superior oblique surgery, Coloboma, and more; Retina and Vitreous; and, ILM peeling with use of trypan blue, Dropped nucleus, Glued IOL and favit, and more. Led by Amar Agarwal and joined by associate editor Soosan Jacob and their 104 contributors, this user-friendly video-based textbook is the ideal way to successfully understand and immediately apply the given techniques in a clinical environment.

Prof. Amar Agarwal, MS, FRCS, FRCOphth is the pioneer of phakonit, which is phako with a needle incision technology. This technique became popularized as bimanual phaco, microincision cataract surgery (MICS), or microphaco. He was the first to remove cataracts through a 0.7-mm tip with the technique called microphakonit. He has also discovered no anesthesia cataract surgery and FAVIT (FA=fallen, VIT=vitreous), a new technique to remove dropped nuclei. The air pump, which was a simple idea of using an aquarium fish pump to increase the fluid into the eye in bimanual phaco and co-axial phaco, has helped prevent surge. This built the basis of various techniques of forced infusion for small incision cataract surgery. He has also discovered a new refractive error called aberropia. He also was the first to do a combined surgery of microphakonit (700- m cataract surgery) with a 25-gauge vitrectomy in the same patient, thus having the smallest incisions possible for cataract and vitrectomy. He was also the first surgeon to implant a new mirror telescopic IOL (LMI) for patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration. He has been the first in the world to implant a glued IOL. In this procedure, a PC IOL is fixed in an eye without any capsules, using fibrin glue. He also modified the Malyugin ring for small pupil cataract surgery, known as the Agarwal modification of the Malyugin ring for miotic pupil cataract surgeries with posterior capsular defects. Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospital has performed a first-time anterior segment transplantation in a 4-month-old child with anterior staphyloma. The turnaround technique for intrastromal ring segments being managed if passed through a false channel creation has also been started in Dr. Agarwal's eye hospital.

Prof. Agarwal has received many awards for his work in ophthalmology, the most significant being the Casebeer award, Barraquer award, and the Kelman award. He is the President-elect of the ISRS/AAO and the Chair of the ISRS-AAO Multimedia Library Editorial Board. His videos have won many awards at the film festivals of ASCRS, AAO, and ESCRS. He has written more than 50 books which have been published in English, Spanish, and Polish. He also trains doctors from all over the world in his center on phaco, bimanual phaco, LASIK, and retina. He heads Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospitals, which has 40 locations. He is also a Professor of Ophthalmology at Ramachandra Medical College in Chennai, India.
