Abstract

This paper introduced the evolution of keratoprosthesis (KPs) from the earliest devices to the newly developed types, pointed out their drawbacks and discussed the properties that an ideal keratoprosthesis or a tissue engineering keratoprosthesis must possess. Recent researches focused on the use of porous polymers as the skirt of core-skirt keratoprosthesis and tried to improve the material's biologicial intergration.
