Surface changes in the anaesthetic conjunctiva in man, with special reference to the production of mucus from a non-goblet-cell source.
  1. P. N. Dilly and
  2. I. A. Mackie


    This paper describes changes in the ultrastructure of the human conjunctiva which follows its denervation. The changes are mainly seen in the mucus-producing subsurface vesicles, the surface microvilli, and the intercellular spaces. Some tentative suggestions are made as to how these changes may influence the stability of the tear film in the anaesthetic state.
