To improve the nutrition of corneal tissue and decrease the extrusion rate in keratoprosthesis we developed implants made with HEMA (hydroxy-ethyl-methacrylate) and inserted these models in rabbit eyes. This soft hydrophilic material seemed to be suitable for intraocular implantation because of its permeability to small molecules, necessary for the nutrition of cornea, and because of its flexibility. Keratoprosthesis with these implants was performed on 30 rabbits. During an observation period… CONTINUE READING
