The density distribution of endothelial cells was determined, directly and indirectly, by counting cells and cell nuclei in two separate groups of unpaired human corneas. Four areas, measuring 1 square mm each, were counted in the corneal center as well as in the periphery close to Schwalbe's line. In 19 Orcein-stained corneas, the peripheral density of nuclei was 3632/mm2 +/- 592 (SD) as compared with central counts of 2778 mm2 +/- 284 (SD). The other group of 22 corneas, stained supravitally… CONTINUE READING
