Cell matrix interactions are important in understanding the healing characteristics of the cornea after refractive surgery or transplantation. The purpose of this study was to characterize in more detail the evolution of biomechanical and optical properties of a stromal equivalent (stromal fibroblasts cultured in a collagen matrix). Human corneal stromal fibroblasts were cultured in a collagen matrix. Compaction and modulus were determined for the stromal equivalent as a function of time in… CONTINUE READING
