A proper understanding of the endothelial cell morphology of the cornea is of great significance to the corneal surgeon. Specular microscopy allows direct visualization of endothelial cell morphology and a proper analysis of these data needs automated computerized type of systems. Automated pattern analysis seems to offer a good option in this direction. From our experience it appears that such systems can be used with great advantage in the analysis of endothelial cell morphology. The data obtained from such analysis help to develop some indices for various facets of endothelial cell morphology.
