Abstract: Rabbit corneas responded differently from human corneas to storage in Optisol-GS. The hydration levels increased to a greater level in rabbit than human corneas under both storage conditions. The trends in amounts of both free and total sodium were similar between the species, although the absolute amounts differed. The largest discrepancy was observed in the amount of bound sodium, with the rabbit corneas experiencing large increases not documented in the human tissue. These results suggest that direct compar…
