Why don't physiology books show refraction at the anterior surface of the cornea?

In brief: Too specific.
A general physiology book already has a lot to cover without delving into physiologic optics.
If you want to dig deeper, check out general optics texts to understand basics like indices of refraction, followed by eye anatomy and physiology texts. The bscs series volume on cornea is helpful. Finally, texts about corneal topography, higher-order aberrations, and lasik would be fun. War eagle!
