Figure 3: (a) Eye showing 360° limbal stem cell deficiency, corneal vascularization and superior symblepharon from 12 to 2 o'clock with retained calcium particles. (b) Same eye 6 months postsimple limbal epithelial transplantation (Group A) – an avascular, epithelialized corneal surface, improved corneal clarity and corrected symblepharon. Few remnants of limbal transplant are visible on the surface. (c) Eye showing superior symblepharon with exuberant granulation tissue from 12 to 3 o'clock covering more than half of cornea. (d) Six months post-CLAU (Group B) epithelialized corneal surface, improved corneal clarity, regressed vascularization, and corrected symblepharon
