Abstract

Autokeratoplasty involves the exchange of corneal button between the two eyes of the same person. The eye with the clear cornea has no potential for vision while the recipient eye has an opaque cornea. Autografts offert the potential advantage of having a very low risk for immunological rejection. We report 3 cases who underwent autokeratoplasty to restore useful vision in one eye.
