Mouse Models of Corneal Scarring
Corneal scarring is an obligatory consequence of stroma corneal injury and is a major cause of decreased visual quality and vision loss worldwide. There are currently no satisfactory intervention therapies for corneal fibrosis. In this chapter, we describe well-established in vivo corneal wound models to allow researchers to investigate epithelial and stromal responses to corneal injury.
