    Light microscopy and electron microscopy were used to define morphological changes occurring in human corneal epithelium during surgery. No correlation was established between preoperative medication or peroperative fluids and corneal epithelial clouding. It is suggested that the changes we observed in relation to epithelial clouding were the direct result of disturbance to endothelial pump functions.
