    Anterior segment optical coherence tomography findings in type I Boston keratoprosthesis

    Purpose: To report the results of high-resolution anterior segment optical coherence tomography of patients implanted with a type 1 Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro). Methods: The retrospective study cohort included 11 eyes of 11 patients (average age, 58.4 years; range, 34-83 years). All subjects underwent anterior segment optical coherence tomography at a single posteoperative time point. The main outcome measures were retro-backplate and retro-optic membrane formation, thinning and gap formation of the corneal carrier graft (melting), and degree of angle closure. Results: Preoperative diagnoses included chemical burn (55%), failed corneal transplant (36%), and Stevens-Johnson syndrome (9%). The mean postoperative follow-up duration ...
