Description

In volume one, we delve into the common cornea topics of structure, physiology, anatomy, infectious etiologies, dystrophies, degenerations, tumors, and immunological and metabolic conditions. In addition, volume one explores innovative advances that are reshaping the field, such as corneal biomechanics, prosthetic replacement of the ocular surface ecosystem(PROSE), treatment for ocular surface disease, gene therapy in the cornea, as well as a biosynthetic alternative to human donor tissue. Each chapter is complete with an exhaustive literature review. And, because of the diligence of our contributors, each segment is current, relevant and expertly written. The second volume is dedicated to corneal surgery. In this book authors have tried to give an update on standard corneal procedures, as well as new and emerging techniques like collagen crosslinking, Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK or DSEK), Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), intrastromal corneal implants, the use of light adjustable lenses in cataract surgery following corneal refractive surgery, and the various femtosecond laser applications in anterior segment surgery.
