Corneal Epithelial Autograft With Middle Lamellar Keratoplasty for Severe Ocular Burns

Feb 28th, 2020 - The purpose of this pilot study is to explore whether corneal epithelial autograft (EA) combined with allogeneic middle lamellar keratoplasty (AMLK) is more effective than limbal autograft (LA) with AMLK for ocular surface reconstruction in patien...

Use of Cross-linked Donor Corneas as Carriers for the Boston Keratoprosthesis

Oct 21st, 2019 - The corneal cross-linking technique has been shown to strengthen the cornea and resist degradation by the body's own enzymes. The use of highly-resistant donor corneas is meant to eliminate the serious post-operative complication of corneal meltin...
