Endothelial bedewing of the cornea in association with contact lens wear



Endothelial bedewing of the cornea in association with contact lens wear



British Journal of Ophthalmology 63(7): 478-481



Endothelial bedewing is described as either a cluster of edematous droplets or a constellation of leucocytes deposited on the surface of the corneal endothelium. The use of marginal retroillumination in biomicroscopy is described for the detection of endothelial bedewing. Some of the clinical characteristics of endothelial bedewing are outlined, and its occurrence in patients who are chronically intolerant to contact lens wear is reported. For these intolerant individuals endothelial bedewing may be indicative of a limited anterior uveal response associated with contact lens wear.
