Abstract

In corneal perforations associated with extensive progressive corneal disease, a technique using tissue adhesive closure of the perforation site and reformation of the anterior chamber before penetrating keratoplasty or conjunctival flap mobilization has been described. Over the past year, six eyes have been successfully treated in this manner. This method allows reformation of the eye under local anesthesia as an emergency procedure without incarceration or injury of the intraocular contents and without pain to the patient. The definitive surgical procedure can then be performed safely under retrobulbar anesthesia.
