The article examines the versatility of eggs in the kitchen. According to Caesar Desiato, executive chef for Aramark Healthcare at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, eggs perform myriad culinary functions and is packed with nutrients such as protein, riboflavin, and selenium. Desiato adds that eggs can also be a component of exotic world cuisine such as tamagoyaki, a rolled Japanese omelet dish.

    Corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) has been described as a promising therapy for keratoconus. According to standard CXL protocol, epithelium should be debrided before treatment to allow penetration of riboflavin into the corneal stroma. However, removal of the epithelium can increase procedure...
