abstract

  • Significant corneal microstructural abnormalities were observed in eyes with keratoconus. RGP contact lens wear was associated with a further reduction in the basal epithelial cell and anterior stromal keratocyte densities, but with no effect on posterior stromal keratocyte density, endothelial cell density, or corneal nerve morphology.
