endothelial bedewing

bedewing, endothelial 

A cluster of inflammatory cells deposited on the posterior surface of the corneal endothelium. They have been noted with anterior eye inflammation and contact lens wear. The symptoms may include slight stinging sensation, some interference with vision and intolerance to contact lens wear. Reduction of wearing time is usually indicated and in severe cases contact lens wear must be ceased. See endothelial blebs; corneal endo-thelium.
