Corneal fragility was measured with the Cochetā€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 whic... Read More about THE INFLUENCE OF AGE ON THE FRAGILITY OF THE CORNEA.

SENSITIVITY AND FRAGILITY IN KERATOCONUS (1983)
Journal Article
MILLODOT, M., & OWENS, H. (1983). SENSITIVITY AND FRAGILITY IN KERATOCONUS. Acta Ophthalmologica, 61(5), 908-917. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1755-3768.1983.tb01473.x

38 persons with various degrees of keratoconus were examined. Using the photokeratoscope an index of the severity of the cone was established and compared to a group of normal eyes. Sensitivity was measured in the centre and periphery of the cornea.... Read More about SENSITIVITY AND FRAGILITY IN KERATOCONUS.
