Part of the new series Gems of Ophthalmology, this book provides the latest information in the diagnosis and management of diseases of the cornea and sclera.

Beginning with an overview of corneal topography, the following chapters compare LASIK and SMILE procedures for refractive surgery, and their potential complications.

The remaining sections discuss numerous disorders, covering both common conditions and more complex, less common infections such as fungal keratitis and acanthamoeba keratitis.

Corneal dystrophies and their latest classification and management are explained in depth, as is DALK (Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty). A chapter on corneal changes in contact lens wearers, is also included.

This comprehensive text is further enhanced by clinical and surgical photographs.

Other topics in the series include: Diseases of the Uvea, Glaucoma, and Retina.
