Abstract

Historically, the role of posterior cornea has been largely ignored. As technology has improved our ability to image the posterior cornea, its increasingly important role is becoming evident. This review article will summarize the complex role of the posterior cornea in surgical planning and outcomes as relevant to refractive surgery, cataract surgery and corneal transplantation.
