PURPOSE The purpose of this article is to review available information regarding development, structure, and function of Bowman's layer in the cornea. Disease-related abnormalities of Bowman's layer are described. A hypothesis is advanced to explain the development and maintenance of Bowman's layer. METHODS Literature review and hypothesis formulation based on previous studies. RESULTS Information is presented that supports the hypothesis that Bowman's layer forms as a result of cytokine… CONTINUE READING
