Although artificial corneal implants are already available for debilitated patients, surgeries are complex and are usually performed as a last resort. This, after considering other procedures.
Therefore, unlike other conventional surgeries, fitting the capro is a relatively simple procedure that practically does not require cuts and sutures. In addition, according to Cornet, the implant uses a biometric substance that promotes cell proliferation and facilitates tissue synthesis.
In fact, after the surgery, the patient was able to identify family members and read the numbers on an eye chart.
