Churakov T.K., Nikulin S.A., Kachanov A.B., Naumenko V.V., Zavyalov A.I. OPTIMIZING THE USE OF CONFOCAL MICROSCOPY OF THE CORNEA IN THE SCIENTIFIC AND CLINICAL STUDIESThe paper presents the results of a study of the ultrastructure of the cornea by confocal microscopy. Given the particular interpretation of the results obtained using this diagnostic method. By the example of changes after LASIK studied the opportunities of layer-by-layer visualization of corneal tissue and prospects of application of the method of confocal microscopy in research and clinical practice.Key words: confocal microscopy, pachymetry, corneal thickness, refractive surgery, LASIK.
