The recent discovery of specific gene mutations for corneal dystrophies has ushered in a new era for the study of these inherited corneal diseases. This concise and well-illustrated monograph captures the essential information needed by today's opthalmologists in this rapidly developing field. From summarising the key aspects of the molecular genetics of corneal dystrophies to describing the use of the excimer laser to treat corneal diseases, this up-to date guide provides valuable information about the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.
