Gems of Ophthalmology—Cornea and Sclera

by HV Nema, Nitin Nema

This book focuses on Gems of Ophthalmology—Cornea and Sclera. Cornea is one of the important structures of the eyeball. It serves as a window to convey visual images. Diseases of the cornea impair vision and an individual loses his independence. The present book on cornea is designed to provide up-to-date information on current important topics. This book consists of 23 chapters. Topics on refractive surgery, such as Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), LASIK in hyperopia, small incision lenticular extraction (SMILE) versus LASIK, and complications of LASIK and its management have been described in the book. Chapter on diagnostic procedures in infectious keratitis presents a detail account of investigations for the benefit of interested readers. Chapters on diagnosis of dry eye, ocular surface disorder, keratoprosthesis, cystinosis and corneal changes in contact lens users are also included in the book. The book is concise and information on corneal diseases is presented in an easily readable form. Postgraduate students, residents, and general ophthalmologists will find it useful in their day-to-day clinical practice.
