Cornea

Managing treatment options for atopic keratoconjunctivitisEye or eyelid involvement in atopic dermatitis is relatively uncommon. However, the frequency and severity of corneal complications may accompany atopic keratoconjunctivitis and lead to vision loss. In all but the mildest cases of AKC, treatment typically consists of corticosteroids; calcineurin inhibitors may be added in more severe cases.
Risk review supports safety of corneal crosslinkingSevere complications are rare (< 1%) after corneal crosslinking for progressive keratoconus. Some are preventable, some are manageable, but some may lead to a need for corneal transplantation
Regenerative cell therapy, tissue engineering are future treatments
Regenerative cell therapy, tissue engineering are future treatmentsAdvances in endothelial and anterior lamellar keratoplasty have given it distinct advantages over penetrating keratoplasty, in corneal replacement. However, there are variations in outcomes from different centers. Moving forward, regenerative cell therapy and tissue engineering will be the future treatments of endothelial disease.
