Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess how reproducible collagen fibril spacing might be in the corneal stroma as viewed by transmission electron microscopy by calculating averaged values for the 2-D organization. One cornea from 8 albino rabbits (2¿kg) was fixed in situ to preserve natural shape. Thin sections were stained with 2% phosphotungstic acid (PTA) and images taken of fibrils from the central-posterior stroma.
