  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated 10 eyes of unilateral limbal demoid by peripheral lamellar keratoplasty using frozen preserved cornea. The graft remained transparent for 6 months to 3.5 years after surgery. Astigmatic anisometropia greater than 2.5 diopters was initially present in 6 eyes. All were amblyopic. Occlusion of the fellow eye and wearing of eyeglasses in the amlyopic eye resulted in improvement of visual acuity of 0.8 or more in 4 eyes. Keratoplasty induced no significant improvement in astigmatism. We therefore advocate early treatment with the above approach for amblyopic eyes associated with limbal dermoid.
