early essential event appears to be neovascularization of the normally avascular corneal stroma. This event is assumed to be necessary to assist corneal access of some of the cellular orchestrators of HSK (1). In line with this notion, inhibition of new blood vessel devel-opment serves to moderate the severity of HSK lesions (2).

Inflammation can be a potent trigger of corneal angiogenesis (or corneal neovascularization) [9]. Physiological balance of vascular biomarkers, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), is crucial in the maintenance of normal vasculature [10]. An imbalance in angiogenic factors and related proteins may lead to proangiogenic processes.
