Overview

Ocular Surface Diseases is the first definitive text on the medical an d surgical management of ocular surface diseases, with a special empha sis on stem cell deficiency disorders. The editors are world-renowned corneal specialists who have recruited leaders in the field of ocular surface disease to contribute chapters. These chapters are formatted f or consistency, heavily illustrated, and uniformly captioned for ease of use by the reader. The book's emphasis is on clear diagnostic and t herapeutic classifications, and inclusiveness of differing techniques. For the practicing ophthalmologist, both corneal specialists in the a cademic setting and general ophthalmologists, this is the first author itative text on state-of-the-art techniques in the management of ocula r surface disorders.
