    UK ∙ New body part discovered: 0.001 mm thick Dua's layer, located within the cornea

    Much more at the Daily Mail link with pictures, sidebar:

    Time to re-write the textbooks: British scientists discover a new part of the human body - hidden deep in the eye
    A previously unknown layer of the cornea has been discovered in the human eye, a breakthrough experts say could 'rewrite the opthalmology textbooks'.

    Researchers from the University of Nottingham found the new layer - which is just 0.001 mm thick - within the cornea, the clear window at the front of the eye.

    They say it could help surgeons dramatically improve outcomes for patients undergoing corneal grafts and transplants.

    Problems with the layer could also explain many eye diseases that until now were elusive in origin.
    ---
    The new layer has been dubbed the Dua's layer, after Professor Harminder Dua who discovered it.
