Abstract

Contact wide-field specular microscopy was performed on 27 monkeys of known ages. The induction of posterior corneal rings as a result of applanation pressure appeared to be age-dependent. There was a total absence of these folds in animals under two years of age, and they usually occurred only in animals older than four years of age.
