Corneal Endothelia Dynamically Balanced On The Cell Jamming Boundary

The cornea is a transparent window inside the body. It transmits light into the eye and helps focus it onto the retina. The corneal endothelium is a single cell layer on its inner surface that is responsible for maintaining corneal transparency. By continually pumping water back into the aqueous humor, transparency is maintained through the precise spacing of collagen fibrils in the corneal stroma. Over a lifetime, cells in the corneal endothelium continually die and are not replaced, so the...
