The in vivo biocompatibility, degradation kinetics, and in-vitro toxicity of porous silion were investigated. The development of a biodegradable ophthalmic biomaterial based on porous silicon was also presented. FTIR, XPS nad fluorescene microscopy were used to study the covalent immobilization of bioactive molecules on the porous silicon. The pore size of the porous silicon could be tuned between 5 to 500 nm by varying the current density during the etch.
