Open Access Medical Books


Edited by Muthiah Srinivasan .

Readers may have access to several textbooks and peer reviewed journals about 
Keratitis, both in print and on-line versions. Recently due to advanced information 
technology made available even in developing nations; online publications have been 
viewed by several health professionals and public as a reliable source of information 
about health. This kind of publications works cheaper and could be shared by many 
users. Traditionally the title Keratitis covers non-infective and infective forms but the 
later one had been described elaborately in most of the languages. The contributing 
authors of this book have shifted their focus towards recent advances about Keratitis 
with their vast experience and expertise. Over the past few decades we have witnessed 
major expansion in the field of Keratitis and these chapters in this book will certainly 
improve the skill and knowledge of the readers involving patient management,
clinical and basic research. 
Keeping up with the broad advance in technology and treatment strategy is 
challenging but is essential if we are to utilize this knowledge effectively for patient
care. As you open this book I hope you as a reader will appreciate the efforts of 
dedicated authors, reviewer and publisher to further enhancing the health science for 
better outcome.
