Corneal Endothelial Function Following Hypoxic Stress Study
“Assessment of Corneal Endothelial Function Following Hypoxic Stress”
The purpose of this study is to determine the difference in the cornea's response to contact lens placement between healthy and unhealthy eyes. The amount of corneal swelling (corneal thickness) between normal and FECD patients before and after a stress test will be measured and compared.
Device - Wearing of contact lens
All subjects will wear a contact lens for three hours. The effect of the lens on the eye (epithelial swelling) will be measured at intervals after the lens is removed.
