Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess the level of agreement for assignment of a normal grade for human ocular surface bulbar conjunctival cells as collected by conjunctival impression cytology. Suitable images from published articles that included a scale marker were subjected to the same planimetry method to assess cell area, nucleus area, long (L) and short (S) dimensions of the cells and the nucleus. These measures, along with the nucleus-to-cytoplasmic (N/C) ratio, were compared.
