Initial chapters review applications in the anterior segment of the eye. A second group of chapters discuss applications in the posterior segment of the eye. The final group of chapters covers other pertinent topics such as hydrogel sealants for wound repair in ophthalmic surgery, orbital enucleation implants, and polymeric materials for orbital reconstruction.
