Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcomes of intrascleral haptic fixation of an intraocular lens (IOL) with fibrin glue combined with penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) or Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) for aphakic or pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (BKP). SETTING: Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. DESIGN: Case series. METHODS: Eyes with BKP had combined PKP or DSAEK with fibrin glue-assisted intrascleral posterior chamber (PC) IOL fixation; PKP was performed in eyes with a corneal scar and DSAEK in eyes without a scar. The parameters evaluated were corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), anterior s..
