    Cornea/External Disease

    In this interview from ASCRS 2021, Dr. Elizabeth Yeu discusses endothelial cell injections. According to a recent study, growing endothelial cells with ROCK inhibitor and then injecting them into patients’ eyes leads to clear corneas in 10 out of 11 patients at 5 years. All but one study patient had a corneal thickness less than 630 microns, she explained. There are several companies working on utilizing and further developing this technology.
