Comments P.66 left column bottom paragraph: "The basic structure of the stroma has been described using a wide range of different techniques (primary sources), and has been shown to be comprised of uniformly thin (∼32 nm diameter) collagen fibrils, which are bundled together to form collagen fibers or lamellae in a wide range of vertebrate corneas." At least 5 of 7 primary sources investigated humans
