Ocular Surface Reconstruction
Our specialists are using preserved amniotic membrane (the membrane from the inner surface of the placenta) to reconstruct the surface of the damaged eyes and eyelids.
Transplantation of Limbal Epithelial Stem Cells from One Eye to the Other
If Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency involves one eye, transplantation of limbal epithelial stem cells from the normal healthy eye can be considered.
Transplantation of Donor Limbal Epithelial Stem Cells
If Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency involves both eyes, transplantation of limbal epithelial stem cells from a cadaveric donor or from a living-related donor can be considered. Systemic immunosuppression for a prolonged, if not indefinite, period of time will have to be administered to prevent failure of the transplant.
