Authors' objectives: To assess the evidence available on the efficacy, safety and issues related with coverage policies for the use of endothelial cell count in patients who underwent laser photo-refractive surgery for myopia or keratoplasty for keratoconus.
Authors' recommendations: No studies providing scientific evidence of the usefulness of endothelial cell count in patients who undergo laser photorefractive surgeries for myopia or keratoplasty for keratoconus were found. Studies evaluating the diagnostic and predictive capability of endothelial cell count in this type of patients are required.
