AIM: To study the effect of intravitreal conbercept on corneal thickness and endothelial cells in macular edema patients.METHODS:Intravitreal conbercept was performed on 30 eyes of 30 patients with macular edema due to different diseases from Jan. 2017 to Dec. 2017 in our hospital. The central corneal thickness was identified by ultrasonic biomicroscope(UBM) before and after surgery. Specular microscopy was also used to detect the density of central corneal endothelial cells and proportion of hexagonal cells before and after surgery.RESULTS:The central corneal thickness were 551.68±12.80μm before surgery, 552.06±13.22μm at the first day after surgery and 552.49±13.83μm at 1 wk after surgery(P0.05). The density of central corneal were 2551.03±287.55/mm~2 before surgery, and 2563.79±292.34, 2543.32±282.41, 2526.18±280.24, 2519.60±279.89/mm~2 at 1 d, 1 wk, 3 mo and 6 mo after surgery respectively, meanwhile, the proportion of hexagonal cells were(50.23±7.51)% before surgery, and(50.93±8.23)%,(50.60±7.91)%,(50.40±7.50)%,(50.93±8.19)% at 1 d, 1 wk, 3 mo and 6 mo after surgery respectively(P0.05).CONCLUSION: Intravitreal injections of conbercept demonstrated a safety in the treatment of macular edema. It seems no affects on corneal thickness and corneal endothelial cells at 6 mo after intravitreal conbercept.
