Cornea: Fundamentals of Clinical Ophthalmology Series / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
The cornea is the ecosystem that connects the internal with the external eye. Defects and disorders in this delicate layer of tissue are frequent, painful and potentially damaging to the internal functioning of the eye. Conversely, disorders of the conjunctiva, eyelids, and tear mechanisms can affect the cornea.
This concise, practical text discusses this interrelationship, giving a comprehensive overview of the cornea and its common disorders, with the emphasis on diagnosis and treatment. Outstanding colour illustrations provide added diagnostic information.
Written by leading international specialists in the cornea, this book joins the Fundamentals in Clinical Ophthalmology series as an ideal reference for all practising ophthalmologists, and those in specialist training.
