Most of the electron microscopic studies of pathological corneas have been done only recently. Keratoplasty has been the most important source of specimens for ultramicroscopic investigation. With the introduction of electron microscopic techniques, we have been able to confirm many light microscopic studies in pathological corneas. This contribution has been most valuable in the identification of the sites and types of pathological changes in corneal dystrophies and degenerations. This review… CONTINUE READING
