Abstract: 

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of microkeratome-assisted lamellar keratoplasty. Methods: In this prospective interventional study, 17 eyes of 14 patients (11 male and 3 female) ranging in age from 16-71 years underwent lamellar keratoplasty (LKP) using a microkeratome. Eyes with lesions limited to the anterior two thirds of the cornea with minimal central corneal thickness of 340 ?m, normal endothelial cell function, and normal adnexa were included. Lamellar dissection in both donor and recipient corneas was performed using a microkeratome (ACS-Chiron Vision).
Results: Mean follow up was 8.6 months (range 6-14 months). Mean preoperative spectacle corrected visual acuity was less than <20/200, which improved to 20/30 postoperatively. Mean postoperative astigmatism was 50. On the last examination, all grafts were clear and no immune reaction or epithelial in growth was observed in any of the patients.
Conclusion: In superficial corneal disorders, microkeratome-assisted LKP is a reasonable alternative to conventional LKP due to superior visual results in addition to faster and easier technique.
