Neuropathic pain is caused by a primary lesion or dysfunction of the nervous system and can occur in the cornea. However, neuropathic corneal pain (NCP) is currently an ill-defined disease. Patients with NCP are extremely challenging to manage, and evidence-based clinical recommendations for the management of patients with NCP are scarce. The objectives of this review are to provide guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of patients with NCP and to summarize current evidence-based literature in this area.
1. By introducing a viable donor tissue procurement, the International Eye Bank has increased the supply of corneal tissue for Kikiyu Mission Hospital's Eye Unit. 2. Tissue procurement can be realistically handled in off-peak times in the United States. 3. The use of modern communication, an excellent surgical staff and well-maintained surgical equipment, and the generosity of medical volunteers and pharmaceutical suppliers have made this project successful.
