Book Description

Moving from a standard clinical reference Garner and Klintworth's Third Edition of Pathobiology of Ocular Disease is now modeled to be both a scientific research tool and a quick reference option for the practicing ophthalmologist, ophthalmic pathologist, optometrist and vision scientist. With the addition of ten new chapters, this edition focuses its attention on the causes and mechanisms of ocular disease, and is on the forefront of the latest discoveries, research methods, and the current on-going research in ocular disease.
