This book is aimed at specialist and researchers who want to be up-to-date with the latest advances in ophthalmology. It is a key element in the study of this disease from a modern perspective, with the latest medical techniques performed.
Keratoconus is more widespread in Spain than it is believed. High incidence of allergies and the climate of the Levant provoke more cases in the area. This disease has become from a rare to one of the most investigated areas in corneal surgery, because of the amount of problems it causes. This study has also helped scientists to obtain new knowledge about treatment of other corneal diseases. Hence the importance of this new book, which includes the most current information about this kind of corneal deformation.
