Identifying relationships between tomography-derived corneal thickness, curvature, and diameter and in vivo confocal microscopic assessment of the endothelium in healthy corneas of young adults

Abstract

PurposeDespite the importance of a healthy endothelial layer in anterior segment surgery, the possible influence of corneal parameters on endothelial cell density (ECD) has largely been ignored in the young adult eye. This study investigated the possible associations between corneal tomographic parameters and ECD values in young adults.MethodsSubjects aged… (More)
