Paper Abstract

In this paper, we reported the results of an in vitro pilot study designed to evaluate the possible use of type-I collagen for corneal wound closure via an in situ photo-crosslink process. The wound strength was measured by rising the intraocular pressure (IOP) at a constant rate until wound breakage (blow-up test). In addition, histology was performed to study the wound appearance after photosoldering.
