Corneal In Vivo Confocal Microscopy: Clinical Applications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) has become a widely accepted imaging technique to study the human living cornea. It provides a unique opportunity to visualize the corneal tissue at the cellular level without damage and longitudinally observe its pathologic and normative changes. With rapidly evolving technology, there has been an abundance of interest in maximizing its potential to better understand the human cornea in health and disease. This is evidenced by a growing literature analyzing acquired and inherited corneal and also systemic diseases using corneal IVCM. This article provides a narrative review of IVCM and its applications. [Full article available at http://rimed.org/rimedicaljournal-2016-06.asp, free with no login].
