The many confusing disorders which afflict the cornea can be most troublesome not only to the beginning resident but to the clinician who has had experience with the keratopathies. As frequently happens when etiology is obscure, the cornea is particularly susceptible to eponymic classification.
The authors, in a valiant attempt to bring some order out of this confusion, have tabulated and briefly described all of the common and most of the uncommon afflictions of the cornea. No attempt has been made to produce an encyclopedic volume and there is little emphasis on therapy, which is planned for another volume. The manual should be most helpful to all clinicians.
