Presentation Description : In vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) is a non-invasive method of examining the living human cornea at the cellular level in healthy and pathological states. Studies of the qualitative and quantitative assessment of corneal inflammatory cells suggest that IVCM is a potential adjunctive tool in the diagnosis and management of a variety of ocular inflammatory diseases such as keratitis and uveitis.

This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2018 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Honolulu, Hawaii, April 29 - May 3, 2018.
