Endothelial bedewing of the cornea in association with contact lens wear.
  1. C W McMonnies and
  2. S G Zantos


    Endothelial bedewing is described as either a cluster of oedematous droplets or a constellation of leucocytes deposited on the surface of the corneal endothelium. The use of marginal retroilumination in biomicroscopy is described for the detection of endothelial bedewing. Some of the clinical characteristics of endothelial bedewing are outlined, and its occurrence in patients who are chronically endothelial bedewing may be indicative of a limited anterior uveal response associated with contact lens wear.
