Emergency corneal grafting in the UK: a 6-year analysis of the UK transplant registry (see page 26)

The information available about emergency corneal graft surgery is limited. In this study, 6 years of data were analysed from UK Blood & Tissue transplant. Emergency corneal graft surgery, although less successful than routine corneal graft surgery, was observed to be a successful eye and sight saving operation.

Long-term clinical outcome of femtosecond laser-assisted lamellar keratectomy with phototherapeutic keratectomy in anterior corneal stromal dystrophy (see page 31)

By using femtosecond laser assisted lamellar keratectomy with phototherapeutic keratectomy, the authors report that vision could be improved through reducing corneal irregularity and high order aberration in anterior corneal stromal dystrophy without recurrence for up to 9.5 years.

Stability of visual outcome between 2 and 5 years following corneal transplantation in the UK (see page 37)

Most patients who received a corneal transplant for keratoconus or Fuchs endothelial dystrophy in the United Kingdom …
