Epikeratophakic Keratoplasty Epikeratophakia

Principle: Severe myopia and hyperopia are corrected by suturing specially prepared hyperopic or myopic partial-thickness corneal grafts on to the recipient's cornea. This involves special trephination and preparation of the recipient's cornea. The donor graft is then fitted into the prepared cornea and sutured in place. The donor corneal button is prepared as a frozen section and shaped to the required refractive power; these implants can be ordered from eye banks.

Indications: Any severity of hyperopia or myopia can be corrected.
