PrefaceThe Santen International Symposium "Corneal Healing Responses to Injuries and Refractive Surgeries", was held to bring together those working in the field of corneal disorders and refractive surgeries to provide them with a forum in which the latest developments could be presented and discussed. Over the last decade, the crystal clear and transparent corneas have been challenged by various types of surgical insult to correct refractive errors. These Proceedings provide a comprehensive coverage of the material covered in this Symposium, allowing the reader to remain up-to-date on the lat.

Preface From Friday morning, February 21, 1997, through Sunday, February 23, at noon, members and guests of the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology heard presentations and discussions of the latest techniques and trends in the study of corneal diseases and surgery, including refractive surgery. This was the subject of the. Forty- Sixth Annual Symposium of the Academy. The speakers comprised a group of eight clinician-surgeons with a wealth of experience and a well-respected talent for innovation in their areas of expertise. From trends in bacterial keratitis to ocular surface disease and healing to the latest opinions on anterior segment reconstruction and refractive surgery, the topics covered were diverse and timely. Especially interesting were the discussions generated by the panelists' presentations and by the question and answer sessions. The demands placed on the speakers at the Annual Meeting of the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology are large and multiple, and probably greater than for most other educational conferences. Each speaker commits to preparing several lectures and usually a panel discussion for presentation, and all speakers are asked to participate in the panel discussions and question and answer periods. The topics are chosen by the program committee, and we sometimes ask speakers to present a subject that is not in their area of research or primary interest. This usually means researching and preparing a completely new lecture. And last, but not least, all speakers commit to preparing chapters and completing panel discussions for this book. And these duties are added to already busy practice and speaking schedules; in fact, the speakers are selected because they have new ideas and useful things to say that everyone wishes to hear. Not all invited speakers are up to the task, but this year we were fortunate that all of our first choices accepted the challenge. Because of the rapidity of change in both refractive surgery and anterior segment treatment, we have attempted to provide the transactions as rapidly as possible. This urgency has again added more demands on the time and energy of the speakers. And this group of authors has responded admirably to our requests. Because of their efforts the reader can use this publication as an update and as a gauge to his/her present practice guidelines. I wish to thank all eight speaker/authors for their efforts on behalf of the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology and the readers of this publication. The information presented here was put on paper by the authors, but we readers are the ones who benefit. In addition, they have added to a forty-year tradition of publications by the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology. I hope that readers consider this book as timely and as useful as previous issues of the Transactions. I also wish to thank Monica L. Monica, MD, President of the NOAO, and the Executive Committee for supporting the program and this publication. As always, a considerable amount of time and effort came from Emily Busby, executive secretary of the NOAO, and my thanks go to her, as well. Lastly, Marguerite McDonald, MD, deserves much credit in the organization of the meeting and the program. Her knowledge and experience were truly indispensable. Daniel A. Long, MD

These guidelines, compiled by a panel of clinicians and scientists with a high level of expertise, aim to provide readers with the most up-to-date and comprehensive instructions on the treatment and prevention of ocular inflammation. All of the recommendations are explicitly linked to supporting evidence and graded according to the strength of that evidence and the editors have made every effort to ensure that chapters are of a consistently high methodological quality. The guidelines for each treatment include dose and the frequency and mode of delivery. Significant side-effects of treatment are identified and distinguished from those of the disease in question. Suggestions are presented for the prevention both of the disease itself and of the treatment-related complications. In addition, likely future directions in treatment and prevention are identified. These guidelines will be of great practical value for all clinicians and clinical scientists with an interest in the subject.
