Overview

Iridocorneal endothelial or ICE syndrome is a spectrum of conditions of the eye,[1] where the inner layer of the cornea appears abnormal.[2] It includes Cogan-Reese syndrome, Chandler's syndrome, and progressive iris atrophy.

Historical Prospective

"Cogan-Reese syndrome" is named for David Glendenning Cogan and Algernon Reese.[3][4]
