This selection of articles from the Encyclopedia of the Eye provides a comprehensive overview of immunological features, diseases and inflammation of the eye and its support structures and organs. Rather than taking an immunological focus that is strictly suitable for clinicians, the volume offers a considerable basic science background and addresses a broad range of topics - the immune system of the eye, its various disorders, mechanisms of inflammation of the eye and visual system, treatment, wound healing mechanisms, stem cells, and more.
*The first single volume to integrate comparative studies into a comprehensive resource on the neuroscience of ocular immunology
*Chapters are carefully selected from the Encyclopedia of the Eye by the world's leading vision researchers
*The best researchers in the field provide their conclusions in the context of the latest experimental results
