Corneal Endothelium Morphology and Central Thickness in Type II Diabetes Mellitus and Normal Subjects
Recruitment status was Recruiting
The purpose of this study is to compare corneal endothelium morphology and central thickness in type II Diabetes Mellitus and normal subjects with special reference to glycemic status.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||Corneal Endothelium Morphology and Central Thickness in Type II Diabetes Mellitus and Normal Subjects|
- Corneal endothelium cell number [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The study is a cross-sectional study. We compare a cohort of patients with DM to a cohort with no DM. We examine each patient and control once. We call time of appointment or examination for "at entry to study".
- Corneal endothelium morphology [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The size and hexagonality of the cells are analysed automaticly by computer recognizion.

Diabetes Type II
Patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Patients with no diabetes
Diabetes might influence the health of the corneal endothelium. Older studies have presented different results and the glycemic status of the patients have not been reported. In this study we examine the corneal endothelium morphology and central thickness in type II Diabetes Mellitus and normal subjects with modern specular microscopy. Each patient and control is examined once ("entry to study").
