This text is part of the Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Ophthalmology which was developed at Philadelphia’s famed Wills Eye Institute. The beauty of this series is the powerful combination of illustrative photographs and a summary approach to the text. While the seven ophthalmic subspecialties in this series—Cornea, Retina, Glaucoma, Oculoplastics, Neuroophthalmology, Pediatrics, and Uveitis—employ varying levels of visual recognition, a relatively standard format for the text is used for all volumes. The goal of the series is to provide an up-to-date clinical overview of the major areas of ophthalmology for students, residents, and practitioners in all the healthcare professions.
Cornea, Second Edition, presents guidelines for the differential diagnosis and treatment of cornea diseases as seen by the ophthalmic resident, general ophthalmologist, and the cornea specialist. The book uses color photographs of the important corneal, anterior segment, and external diseases with an outline format to succinctly illustrate and describe these conditions. Each section covers the clinical features of the important cornea and external eye diseases, diagnostic tests, differential diagnoses, and treatment. This atlas features more than 440 full color photographs important corneal, anterior segment and external diseases.
