An alternative to human donor cornea is needed as the availability of limited good quality tissue, with this condition potentially worsening in many countries as the population is progressively ageing. Corneal equivalent develop by numerous attempts as an alternative to human corneas donated as well as prosthesis. In this review the efforts in bioengineering implants has been focus that are described include biomaterials that allow for partial regeneration of corneal tissue, self-assembled cornea constructs and cell free. Cornea implants that promoted regeneration when evaluated in clinical trials.
