Ask A Doctor Question:
How long does it take the cornea to regenerate and/or repair itself once the stem cells are put in the cornea? Is it more or less effective then a regular corneal transplant? Is corneal stem cell transplantation experimental or is it FDA approved?- Wyatt
Thank you for your excellent question, but I must defer to a corneal specialist who does stem cell transplants and corneal transplants to answer these technical questions.
