Endothelial cell morphology is like a ‘canary in the coal mine’…a potential warning that the structural stability of the endothelium has been affected, possibly by surgical procedures, disease, trauma or contact lenses.
Konan specular microscopes are recognized in the industry as the de facto standard for ECD determination. This is supported in the minutes from the FDA panel meeting to discuss the ARTISAN® lens: “Data from 12 sites were chosen because they used the Konan specular microscopes. This instrument is now the accepted standard for the most accurate determination of endothelial cell density”.R. Doyle Stulting, MD, PhD.
