Keratoplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the shape and functioning of cornea and to eliminate defects, opacities and deformations caused by keratoconus or a traumatic experience. The aim of this surgery is to replace a part of the cornea with a donor transplant. The corneal graft may replace different separate layers of the cornea (anterior and posterior lamellar keratoplasty) or all layers (penetraring keratoplasty).
