Abstract

Keratoplasty performed for tectonic reasons, especially grafts performed for perforated corneal ulcers have also been found to lead to high rates of IOP elevation with glaucoma being the most common complication postoperatively. The longer the period between the perforation and therapeutic keratoplasty the greater the likelihood of developing glaucoma. Eyes with corneo iridic scars (adherent leucomas) preoperatively have also been found to be at high risk of development of glaucoma post keratoplasty.
