Bowman's membrane, seen as a homogeneous layer in light microscopy, is demonstrated by transmission electron microscopy as a layer with fibrils in random distribution, for which reason the term used at present is Bowman's layer. Frozen resin cracking demonstrates that the fibrils of the layer run in certain patterns and lie in 3 or 4 strata in the central areas of the cornea. In the periphery, stratification is scarcely demonstrable. The fibrils consist of collagen inseparable by histochemical… CONTINUE READING
