Beschreibung_This book provides a concise review of the latest diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for effective management of patients with ocular surface diseases (OSD), ranging from the very common dry eyes and tear film disorders to the more severe epithelial diseases such as limbal stem cell deficiency. The role and application of both medical and surgical treatments are carefully explained, covering, for example, current medical approaches to dry eye disease, ocular graft versus host disease, and chronic cicatricial conjunctivitis, the use of contact lenses in management of OSD, amniotic membrane transplantation, limbal transplantation, cell-based therapies, and use of the Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro). The book is intended for optometrists and ophthalmologists, in practice or in training, who are seeking an update on the more advanced clinical practices. The chapters are authored by clinical experts in the field who share a wealth of practical knowledge and pearls that will be useful to any practitioner.
