Abstract

Lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty was carried out in experimentally produced fungal corneal ulcers in rabbits. All the eyes in which lamellar keratoplasty was performed were lost due to reinfection. However, 80% of the eyes in which penetrating keratoplasty was carried out were saved.
