Abstract

Morphometric study was conducted on 28, serially sectioned staged human embryos. The cornea is of equal thickness during its early development (stages 15±17). During developmental stages 18 and 19 (7 th week) it is thicker in the central part. In the last embryonic week the peripheral part of the cornea becomes thicker than its central part. The performed study elucidates structural differentiation during development of the cornea.
