Corneal transplantation is one of the primary treatments for loss of corneal function, but only one in 70 people who need corneal transplants receive them, leaving some 12.5 million people suffering from vision loss because there simply aren’t enough corneal donors to go around. Attempts to replicate the perfectly-spherical, collagen-based protective layer of the eye have come up short. But last year we reported on a 3D bioprinted cornea out of Newcastle University that looked (pun intended) very promising.
