Regenerative medicine and surgery is the new frontier in ophthalmology. The cornea offers unique characteristics and a privileged scenarium to develop these techniques. Recently published basic research and translational research indicates that either the ocular surface, particularly the corneal epithelium, the corneal stroma and endothelium can be regenerated without the need for allogenic grafts. There is at this moment solid clinical evidence of this progress and the future perspective on the topic is immense. Advanced therapies based on the use of different types of stem cells have been progressing and are at this moment becoming available in some countries. The purpose of this review is to offer the practical ophthalmologist a real perspective based on evidence about what corneal regeneration therapy may offer today to the practicing clinician and the corneal surgeon.

This Research Topic will be focused on review papers that will be based on the analysis of the evidence existing about the different techniques that have been proposed on a clinical human basis for the regeneration of the corneal epithelium and the ocular surface, the corneal stroma, and the corneal endothelium and its practical applications.
