Abstract

For the anterior segment surgeon, the implantation of Boston type 1 keratoprosthesis is a multistep process that begins with careful patient selection. Success depends on thorough preop­erative evaluation, detailed surgical planning, and frequent postoperative follow-up. New practice patterns have emerged for each of these phases as the international experience with keratopros­thesis grows. This review details special considerations that can improve outcomes and also allow surgeons to consider its use in challenging patient populations at each step.
