    Book details

The Santen International Symposium ''Corneal Healing Responses to Injuries and Refractive Surgeries'', was held to bring together those working in the field of corneal disorders and refractive surgeries to provide them with a forum in which the latest developments could be presented and discussed. Over the last decade, the crystal clear and transparent corneas have been challenged by various types of surgical insult to correct refractive errors. These Proceedings provide a comprehensive coverage of the material covered in this Symposium, allowing the reader to remain up-to-date on the latest research into refractive surgery and corneal physiology. Recent developments in the field of corneal injuries, healing and optimal management of this common problem are covered. A significant effort has been made to ensure that this book includes the latest scientific information, with the contents being reviewed and edited by experts well known in the field of corneal disorders. When preparing the program, one of the major aims was to select the most important data at the cutting edge of development, and we feel this aim has certainly been realized. Huge developments have occurred in the field of corneal treatment during the last ten years. These developments have been based on a more complete understanding of corneal anatomy and physiology, and the healing process following surgical management. We now know that outcome depends not only on technical skill but also to a large extent on the healing response to the injuries. Therefore, to avoid complications and to ensure an optimal outcome, we need to manipulate the healing process, and developments in cellular and molecular biology have allowed us to do just this. It was therefore very important and timely that the program covered in detail physiology and cellular advances, such as the role of cytokines, growth factors, through to wound healing processes. This allowed the participants to gain a good insight into the latest basic scientific research, upon which optimal clinical management is based.
