PURPOSE To further improve in vitro models of the cornea, this study focused on the creation of a three-dimensional, stratified, curved epithelium; and the subsequent characterization and evaluation of its suitability as a model for biocompatibility testing. METHODS Immortalized human corneal epithelial cells were grown to confluency on curved cellulose(More)
PURPOSE To visualize in vivo and quantify the thickness of the posterior corneal layers: the acellular pre-Descemet's layer (PDL), Descemet's membrane (DM), and endothelium (END) in healthy subjects, using ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (UHR-OCT). METHODS A research-grade, 800-nm UHR-OCT system with 0.95-μm axial resolution in corneal(More)
