Paper Abstract

The aim of this work is to image the wound healing process of cornea in an in vitro organ culture model with noninvasive multiphoton imaging modality. Autofluorescence and second harmonic generation (SHG) were respectively used to monitor the alterations of cellular and collagenous components during wound healing processes. Within additional developments, this approach may be applied to in vivo visualization of corneal structural destruction and the subsequent regeneration.
