Abstract

With the development of corneal refractive surgery, especially the application of femtosecond laser, and the lack of corneal donor, corneal stromal lenticules produced in refractive surgery have gradually attracted the attention of ophthalmologists.Most fresh corneal stromal lenticules are difficult to put into use immediately, so how to better preserve and treat the lenticules is a problem that ophthalmologists need to solve.Corneal stromal lenticules can be used in the treatment of many kinds of ophthalmic diseases.In this article, the preservation and treatment of corneal stromal lenticules, as well as its application and prospects in treating hyperopia and presbyopia, keratoconus, corneal ulcer, corneal dystrophy, dermoid tumors and recurrent pterygium, corneal thinning after laser in situ keratomileusis, and covering glaucoma drainage valve to prevent exposure were reviewed to provide reference for further clinical research and application.

Key words:

Corneal stromal lenticule; Hyperopia; Presbyopia; Keratoconus
