Abstract

We tested agreement for small fibre morphology using corneal in vivo confocal microscopy between the recently available higher-magnification 300 μm(2) and the conventional 400 μm(2) field-of-view lenses. We found insignificant bias for corneal nerve fibre length indicating that either lens could reasonably be applied to research and clinical screening for diabetic neuropathy.
