NIIOS R&D

At NIIOS Research & Development we develop tissue preparation methods and surgical techniques with a focus on advanced lamellar keratoplasty.

Developing a new surgical protocol encompasses more than just the operation itself. We also look at new ways to harvest and prepare donor tissue and to develop new surgical instruments and medical devices. We closely monitor and evaluate clinical outcomes of procedures such as (advanced) DMEK and Bowman layer transplantation in order to continually improve and refine these techniques.

What's new
