From the onset of secondary fibre cell formation until birth, two Y-shaped sutures are present. The anterior Y is erect, whereas the posterior Y is inverted. Each growth shell of secondary fibres has both an anterior and a posterior suture composed of three branches which are positioned essentially equidistant from one another. Since identical sutures are laid down in each shell, continuous suture planes are formed. After birth, growth is more asymmetric so complicated branching patterns are observed.

Each cornea has a specific number of cells, approximately 3,500/mm2, but the population declines throughout life and especially in later life. The population can be further reduced by disease, trauma or surgical intervention. Just anterior to the endothelium is a layer called Descemet’s membrane, which is a condensation of the corneal-stromal connective tissue on its innermost aspect. While one function of the endothelial layer is to maintain corneal metabolism, transferring metabolites from the aqueous humour on its posterior aspect to the corneal tissue, its most important function is to act as a pump, removing excess fluid from the cornea to maintain its state of relative dehydration and therefore its optical clarity.
