This picture of Endolithium Cells is of a kc patients. It is best seen with photo shop as then you can zoom in to see in more detail. It shows at cell level whats going on...

...both links work fine?


Here are the pic's anyway (if they don't come up please read below)... 


    



Pictures of Keratoconus Endolithium Cells & Normal Endolithium Cells. 


 


You can also see them here at Lucio's site is the pictures can not be accessed,  http://www.helpoffice.altervista.org/ 


Type "kcend" as this is the kc log in and password to access the site


Due to the password protection (which was added recently) AND the direct linkage, this may cause the pictures not to appear. If that happens please used Lucio's site to view the pictures, with the "KC log in" and "password". The thing is once the site pictures are accessed the picture pop up here!

Ok Lucio and everyone... these pictures are normal... i showed them to a Dr in london and he said that when a person ages their Endolithium cells age as well and cell count goes down.


The thing i wanted to say was that in a "normal" eye with "normal" cornea's the cell count going down does not matter (in fact its normal for that to happen)... unlike with for someone with kc cornea's... This is because the Endolithium cells takes fluids way from the front of the eye... when there are less Endolithium cells, this does not happen as much and if you have a very thin cornea (in places) the fluids not taken away can tear through the cornea to cause "hydrops".


To note that the cell count of the Endolithium cells can be mesured to see if they are declining quickly or not.


Also the "normal" looking Endolithium cells picture is probably of a baby or child who has the full amount of Endolithium cells at brith (Lucio found this picture on the net).
