Multimodal Highlighting of Structural Abnormalities in Diabetic Rat and Human Corneas.

PURPOSE This study aimed to highlight structural corneal changes in a model of type 2 diabetes, using in vivo corneal confocal microscopy (CCM). The abnormalities were also characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy in rat and human corneas. METHODS Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rats were observed at age… CONTINUE READING
