An introduction to ophthalmic biomaterials and their role in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
Chirila, Traian & Harkin, Damien G. (2016) An introduction to ophthalmic biomaterials and their role in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In Chirila, Traian & Harkin, Damien G. (Eds.) Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine in Ophthalmology. Woodhead Publishing, Sawston, Cambridge.
This chapter presents a brief history of the development of ophthalmic biomaterials. Particularities in the development of ophthalmic biomaterials are discussed and some of their historic priorities within the general field of biomaterials are revealed or emphasized. The chapter then discusses the role and integration of ophthalmic biomaterials in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications.
