Abstract

Although challenging from a technical perspective, many corneal surgical procedures can be mastered by the general practitioner. This article describes a number of procedures that can potentially save both the eye and vision. Procedures include corneal laceration repair, conjunctival pedicle graft, tarsoconjunctival island graft, advancement graft, total conjunctival graft, frozen tectonic corneal graft, porcine small-intestine submucosa graft, and superficial keratectomy. In addition to considerations on how to properly perform these procedures, emphasis is placed on common causes of failure and how to avoid them.
