Ocular surface reconstruction has evolved greatly in the past few decades because of increased understanding of limbal stem cell location and function, as well as improved microsurgical and stem cell culture techniques. Proper diagnoses of corneal limbal stem cell dysfunction, provision of appropriate presurgical intervention and management, logical selection of the appropriate limbal stem cell transplantation technique, optimum postoperative management, and performance of lamellar or penetrating keratoplasty, when indicated, are essential steps to maximize the prognosis for graft survival and visual outcome in eyes with limbal stem cell deficiency.
