Atlas and Text of Corneal Pathology and Surgery

by Samuel Boyd, Angela Maria Gutierrez, James P McCulley

The concept of this book is to provide ophthalmologists with a comprehensive Volume that presents both medical advances as they relate to corneal diseases and the surgical approach not only to the treatment of these diseases but to new surgical techniques in cornea and refractive surgery. We have written this book reflecting our views as to basic mechanisms and approaches to therapy, with the hope that other points of view are fairly presented as well. The basic and advanced concepts presented here evolved from the vast experience of the authors in many parts of the world in which they discuss step-by-step management and surgical techniques. We have divided the book into different sections. The first deals with immunologic and pathologic concepts that we feel are relevant to understand and updates your knowledge of corneal diseases. This is followed by a surgical section on corneal and refractive surgery with an attempt to cover the most relevant techniques in our day-to-day surgical modalities. Even though the chapters are arranged in what we feel is a logical order, they can be read independently. The reader is also referred to other relevant chapters in the book.
