Abstract

HA is the predominant component of NV in corneal pathologies. LA accompanies HA; however, isolated LA (from lymphatics in the conjunctiva) does not occur in these corneal pathologies. Our results suggest the potential therapeutic utility of targeting antineovascular therapies specifically for corneal HA and/or LA pathology.
