    After preliminary testing with pig, dog, rabbit, monkey, cat, and human cadaver eyes the CLCC system has been used for penetrating and lamellar keratoplasty in human subjects. Clinical experience covers a broad range of corneal pathology. Detailed operative instructions and observations are given. In the experimental situation the CLCC is being used to achieve deep lamellar corneal dissection for a continuing study of non-penetrating keratoplasty.
