127 Clinical Comment: Keratoplasty In conditions where the cornea thins and perforation is a danger, or when central corneal scarring (perhaps from injury or infection) causes loss of visual acuity, or when the endothelium is compromised and function is lost, the cornea can be replaced by a donor cornea. The cornea is normally devoid of antigen processing because of the lack of blood vessels and so the rate of graft rejection is usually quite low. Full thickness penetrating keratoplasty (PK) has been the traditional method for replacing diseased and compromised corneas.

Numerous complications resulted, the most serious of which was endothelial compromise when the incision extended to the endothelium. Greatly improved procedures have enhanced the methods for corneal restructuring and in these procedures corneal stroma is removed. The amount of stroma to be removed is determined by the target refractive correction desired. In photorefractive keratoplasty (PRK), the epithelium is removed first, usually by mechanical means; then Bowman’s layer and anterior stroma are ablated by laser.

In a contact lens wearer, neovascularization is usually an indication that the cornea is not receiving enough oxygen. It can be a sign of a poorly fitting or poorly moving lens or a thick edge. The incidence of neovascularization is higher in soft contact lens wearers than in those wearing rigid gas-permeable lenses and increases in those who wear their lenses for extended periods. New vessels sprout from the perilimbal capillaries; first enzymes degrade the basement membrane of the capillary, then the endothelial cells migrate, and finally endothelial cells proliferate to form new vessels that enter the cornea (Figure 2-19, A and B).
