Abstract

Currently, the system of the Ministry of Health of Russia has adopted the classification of eye burns, proposed in 1973 by N.A.Puchkovskaya and V.M.Nepomashy. The appearance in recent years of the concept of limbal stem cells of the corneal epithelium and its application in clinical practice has significantly expanded the possibilities of diagnostics, treatment, and visual rehabilitation of patients with eye burns. In 1997, M.D.Wagoner proposed a classification of eye burns, in which the gradation of burn severity is determined by the degree of damage to limbal stem cells. Taking into account this modern approach, a new classification of eye burns is proposed.
