A porous collagen sponge was developed for use as an in vitro model for culture of corneal cells. Corneal epithelial, endothelial and stromal fibroblasts were cultured on the collagen matrix. It was shown that all three cell types proliferated, migrated and produced extracellular matrix and the behavior of the cells was influenced by culture with another cell type.
