In non-contact specular microscopy of corneal endothelium, endothelial cell density is overestimated due to the angle of observation and the curvature of cornea. On the basis of theoretical considerations, it is concluded that if the angle of observation is kept at a small value the curvature of cornea contributes only insignificantly to this overestimation… CONTINUE READING
