Corneal graft

Photo by Dr. Mahadhir Alhady

This 30 year-old underwent a right penetrating corneal graft 8 months ago for corneal opacity secondary to recurrent disciform keratitis. The vision was 6/60 preoperative and 6/18 post-operative (unaided).

 

Right corneal graft with a peaked pupil. A loose stitch at 7 O'clock.

 

Loose stitch causes localized neovascularization. The stitch is removed and

topical steroid given to prevent corneal rejection.

 

Iris atrophy and incarceration at the interface between the graft and recipient cornea.
