The potential benefits of polyphenols for corneal diseases

Corneal diseases can affect the biomechanical and optical properties of the eye, resulting in visual impairment or even blindness. In a groundbreaking exploration, recent scientific advancements highlight the potential benefits of polyphenols, plant secondary metabolites with diverse origins and potent biological activities, in the treatment of corneal diseases.

Feng et al. from the Shandong Provincial Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Eye Institute of Shandong First Medical University provided a concise yet comprehensive overview of corneal and related diseases, shedding light on the research progress of natural polyphenols in this domain.

The review paper highlighted the most recent studies on polyphenols' versatility in addressing specific corneal challenges:

  • Tissue Repair: Facilitates the repair of damaged corneal tissues.
  • Keratitis Treatment: Effective against infectious corneal inflammation.
  • Neovascularization Control: Inhibits abnormal blood vessel growth.
  • Dry Eye Syndrome Relief: Alleviates dry eye syndrome, enhancing ocular comfort.

In summary, by presenting the latest advancements, Feng et al. offered a novel perspective on the secure treatment of corneal diseases, emphasizing the significant role natural polyphenols can play in enhancing ocular health.
