• The corneal endothelial cell count and central corneal thickness of 20 eyes of patients with pigmentary dispersion syndrome and 20 age-, sex-, and refractive error-matched control eyes were investigated in a masked fashion with a specular microscope and a pachometer. Despite the existence of glaucoma and different degrees of pigment dispersion with Krukenberg's spindles, there was no significant difference in the central corneal endothelial cell density and central corneal thickness between these two groups.
