Brief Summary:
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.

Condition or disease
Corneal Dystrophy

Detailed Description:
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").

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 300 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Corneal Endothelium Morphology and Central Thickness in Type II Diabetes Mellitus and Normal Subjects
Study Start Date : June 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2010

Group/Cohort
Diabetes Type II
Patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Control
Patients with no diabetes



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Corneal endothelium cell number [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    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".


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Corneal endothelium morphology [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    The size and hexagonality of the cells are analysed automaticly by computer recognizion.
