  • To Adapt The Physical Properties Of Living Materials To Their Biological Function
  • Nature Developed Various Types Of Polymers With Outstanding Physical Behavior
  • One Example Is The Vitreous Body
  • Which Is Important Intraocular Elements Not Only Because Of Its Optical And Mechanical Performances
  • But Also Due To Its Important Role In The Pathogenesis And Treatment Of Conditions Affecting Adjacen
  • We Report A Novel Biocompatible Material For Injectable Vitreous Substitute
  • Composed Of Thermosensitive Amphiphilic Polymer
  • Which Is Capable Of Forming A Transparent Gel In The Vitreous Cavity
  • It Is Nontoxic
  • Provides Adequate Support For The Retina
  • And Allows Light To Reach The Sensory Elements At The Back Of The Eye
  • The Amphiphilic Polymer Exhibits Mechanical Stability By Assembling To Form Highly Interconnected Hy
  • Which Leads To The Constitution Of A Network Structure
