Abstract

Corneal fragility was measured with the Cochet‐Bonnet aesthesiometer on 171 eyes of various ages. It was found to remain the same until about age 40. It increased significantly and progressively afterwards. It was compared to corneal sensitivity which diminishes significantly after about the same age. 1984 Institution Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica
