London: In a breakthrough, scientists have found a previously undetected layer in the cornea - the clear window at the front of the human eye - and named it after the Indian researcher who made the discovery.The findings, by researchers from the University of Nottingham in UK, could help surgeons to dramatically improve outcomes for patients undergoing corneal grafts and transplants. The new layer has been dubbed the Dua`s Layer after the academic Professor Harminder Dua who discovered it. The human cornea is the clear protective lens on the front of the eye through which light enters the eye. Scientists previously believed the cornea to be composed of five layers, from front to back, the corneal epithelium, Bowman`s layer, the corneal stroma, Descemet`s membrane and the corneal endothelium.
