Book: Cornea: Fundamentals of Clinical Ophthalmology Series (Fundamentals of Clinical Opthalmology)
Publisher: BMJ Books
This book is part of a series of ophthalmic monographs, written for ophthalmologists in training and
general ophthalmologists wishing to update their knowledge in specialised areas. The emphasis of
each is to combine clinical experience with the current knowledge of the underlying disease processes.
Each monograph provides an up to date, very clinical and practical approach to the subject so that
the reader can readily use the information in everyday clinical practice. There are excellent
illustrations throughout each text in order to make it easier to relate the subject matter to the patient.
The inspiration for the series came from the growth in communication and training opportunities
for ophthalmologists all over the world and a desire to provide clinical books that we can all use.This
aim is well reflected in the international panels of contributors who have so generously contributed
their time and expertise.
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.
