abstract

  • This novel imaging technique allows rapid measurement of in vivo corneal nerve migration. The results indicate that diabetic neuropathy may be associated with reduced nerve migration; however, because of the high level of manual input required in this technique and the apparent complex characteristics of corneal nerve migration, repeatability and characterization studies are needed.
