The Magic Molecule that has improved the lives of millions is the title of a new book written by Börje Svensson. The “magic molecule” makes it possible to remove the eye’s lens and replace it with an artificial one. Cataracts are the cause of most lens replacements and until the early 1980’s, lens transplants were a very complicated affair, so much so that many eye surgeons avoided the procedure altogether. The revolutionary events that have taken place since, now allow surgeons to perform a lens transplant in less than 15 minutes, the results of which are successful nearly every single time.
The book is the first publication we publish in the format EPUB (a short for electronic publishing).
