Important questions about myopia are being posed by researchers across a broad spectrum of disciplines from psychology to molecular biology, from corneal surgery to retinal physiology, and from genetics to experimental optics. In bringing together information on pathology, epidemiology, experimentation and treatment, this volume seeks to cover all aspects of myopia research.
