Aging research on the human eye crosses all areas of ophthalmology and also relies upon biological, morphological, physiological, and biochemical tools for its study. In Age-Related Changes of the Human Eye, the authors review all aspects of human eye aging. In addition to descriptions of age-related changes in almost all the structures of the human eye, the authors also include interesting accounts of personal experiments and data. The ease of use and versatility of this volume makes it an essential tool for students and graduate students as well as post-doctoral and/or professional ophthalmologists. Age-Related Changes of the Human Eye provides the reader with an exhaustive panorama of what happens during aging in the eye, thus making an important contribution to the understanding of the physiology and pathology of eye diseases.
