Corneal disease management has undergone tremendous advancements over the past four decades, and this comprehensive book covers the history, current practices, and future directions of the field. The authors, many of whom were trained by Claes Henrik Dohlman, MD, PhD, a pioneering figure in corneal research, provide state-of-the-art insights into various aspects of cornea.

The book, Foundations of Corneal Disease: Past, Present, and Future, is divided into six sections. The first section gives an introduction to subspecialty training in cornea and provides a historical perspective on ocular surface disease. The second section covers important corneal and external diseases, such as infectious keratitis, dry eye, and herpes simplex. The third and fourth sections discuss surgical procedures and their alternatives, and the latest developments in corneal research. The final section delves into special topics such as corneal imaging, corneal blindness, eye banking, and clinical trials in dry eye, and explores future directions in the field.

This book is an excellent resource for corneal specialists, ophthalmology residents and fellows, corneal scientists, and anyone interested in a comprehensive guide to cornea and its history.
