In the Fall 2015 issue of EyeWitness: A publication of the Contact Lens Society of America (CLSA), Dr. Lobanoff has his article published “The Importance of the Limbal Stem Cell”.

In the article, Dr. Lobanoff informs readers how these unique group of cells, hidden deep in the limbus’s rete ridges of the palisades of Vogt, maintain clear vision and healthy corneas. Whether blasted by ultraviolet radiation from sunlight, high airflow, bacteria and more, the corneal epithelium is under constant attack. Without fresh new cells from the limbus, the cornea would quickly succumb to damage and fail.
