Occupational exposure of the cornea to ultraviolet radiation (UVR, e.g. in welding) is a well-known cause of ‘arc eye’ (photo-keratoconjunctivititis), but has also been considered to be a risk for the development of alterations in the size (polymegethism) and shape (pleomorphism) of the deeper-lying human corneal endothelial cells. Human data are however limited and so a further study was undertaken, with a control group.
