Abstract

A micropachometer was developed for the measurement of epithelial thickness in the living human cornea. The technique requires no contact with the eye and will be of value in studies of the anterior cornea and the physiological effects of contact lenses. The design is described, and results are presented from measurements of epithelial thickness.
