Abstract

We measured corneal endothelial cell density of 100 normal eyes of 50 Korean volunteers on central, superior, inferior, nasal and temporal aspect, respectively. Non-contact specular microscopy were used for measurement. The data thus obteined were analyzed according to the following parameters: age, laterality, sex and location(central vs. peripheral). Corneal endothelial cell density showed gradual decrement with age, but no significant statistically differences with laterality and sex. The results showed a large difference in corneal endothelial cell density depending on the location, although they failed to show statistical significant(P>0.05).
