This lavishly illustrated atlas demonstrates normal in-vivo anatomy of the cornea, limbus, and conjunctiva; quantifies various cellular structures using cell-density calculations; and establishes correlations between novel optical sections of various diseases of the ocular surface and clinical findings. It also describes early signs of different eye diseases and supports the reader in diagnostic and therapeutic management.
