Abstract

Purpose:: To compare the central and peripheral (< 2 mm from the limbus) endothelial regions of the human cornea of young contact lens (CL) neophytes, in terms of endothelial cell density (ECD), polymorphism through cell hexagonality (HEX), and polymegethism through the coefficient of variation of cell areas (CoV). Materials and methods:: In vivo, central, temporal, and nasal ECDs, HEXs, and CoVs were determined for thirty healthy right eyes (age: 22–30 years) using a Takagi 700 G L LED slit-lamp biomicroscope equipped with the centre-dot EndoKer
