Abstract

Except for the characteristics of stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have other distinct functions such as prompting wound healing, anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory ability, which has made them one of the most promising candidates for cell therapy. By taking advantage of their different characteristics and functions, MSC have been exploited in the treatment of many ocular diseases, such as corneal diseases, uveitis and retinal diseases. This paper will review the progress of the applications of MSC in ocular diseases in recent years.
