Histologically, keratoconus displays many abnormal features which affect different layers of the cornea, including abnormal epithelial and stromal keratocyte
shape, local thickening of the epithelium, Bowman's layer breakage, and thinning of the stroma [2, 3].

involves rolling of the cell body.

Corneal confocal microscopy was utilized to demonstrate for the first time that PPAR[delta] inhibited keratocyte
activation in vivo.
The value for R has been chosen equal to half the keratocyte
thickness (Table 3).
Dipika Patel, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology from the University of Auckland in New Zealand said Keratocyte
density (the cells that help keep the cornea transparent and maintain its healing ability) was up to 25 per cent lower in cases of Keratoconus patients who wore contact lenses than 'control' corneas.
