Figure 2: Confocal images of central cornea in normal subject and limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD). (a) Basal epithelial cells in normal subject. Cell size is small and cell borders are distinct. (b) Basal epithelial cells in moderate degree of LSCD. The cell size is enlarged and the cell boarder is indistinct. (c) Epithelial cells in total LSCD. There is loss of normal corneal epithelial cells and presence of severe neovascularization. Infiltration of many inflammatory cells is present (arrow)
