This book is dedicated to Phillips Thygeson, MD, of the Francis I. Proctor Foundation at the University of California in San Francisco, and Claes Henrik Dohlman, MD, of the Howe Laboratory and Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, who were the mentors of the two authors, respectively. The 32 contributors from the faculties of the two institutions and their former trainees have been active in corneal research and diseases. Their contributions are outstanding in historical background, current scientific information, and clinical aspects of corneal diseases and their treatment. The literature cited is complete, the illustrations numerous and excellent, and the many tables extremely helpful. The two editors have maintained the highest standard of integration and presentation of the many aspects.
This textbook is a must for both investigators of corneal physiology and pathology and for clinical ophthalmologists. Not only is it easily readable, but also represents a reference work for
