ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' perspective on a study about the prevalence of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) DNA in human cornea tissues, published within the issue. They contend that the study provides additional knowledge about (HSV-1) DNA and offers important clinical information about consequences of HSV-1 DNA in the cornea. They also note that the study's result contributes to the understanding about herpetic keratitis (HK) and penetrating keratoplasty (PKP).
