The discovery, announced in a study published in the journal Ophthalmology academic, could help surgeons can significantly improve outcomes for patients in transplantation and corneal transplantation. The new layer is layer the Dua after Universidad Professor Haider Inder Dua, refers to the discovery. Professor Dua, Professor of Ophthalmology and vision Sciences, said: this is an important site, which means that it will be literally rewritten Ophthalmology books. With this new and different level identified woven deep into the cornea, we can now use to make their presence operations in patients much safer and easier. Clinically, there are many diseases, from the rear part of the cornea, the doctors around the world, refer to the presence, absence or crack in this layer. The human cornea is the protector of the transparent lens in the front part of the eye, which can reach the light in their eyes. So far scientists to reverse the cornea consists of five layers, from the time that believed in epithelial corneal, Bowman, corneal stromal layer and endothelial corneal Descemet membrane. The new plan, which was discovered is located in the rear part of the cornea corneal stroma and Descemets membrane. Although only 15 ┬Ám thick - that microns of thickness approximately 550 entire corneal or 0, 5 mm-it is incredibly difficult and is strong enough to support energy, a year and a half or two bars of pressure. Scientists have shown the existence of simulating human corneal transplants and grafts in purposes of eye search eye donated to Bristol and Manchester stores. While this operation were the small bubbles in cornea separate layers gently injected. The scientists then digest post presented the separate layers of study of electron microscopy, thousands of times their actual size. Understanding of the properties and easier to recognize the stratum corneum Dua new surgeons, these bubbles occur, and take action appropriate during the operation. If you can inject a bubble beside the Dua, strength, it means that it is less vulnerable to boot, which means a better outcome for the patient. The discovery will focus on the understanding of a number of diseases that affect the cornea, including acute Anasarca, Descematocele and pre-Descemet Dystrophies. Researchers now believe that corneal hydrops, an inflammation of the cornea is caused by accumulation of fluid that occurs in patients with Keratoconus (deformation cone of the cornea), through a crack in the layer of Dua, where storms the water inside the eye and causes causes of stagnation. . .
