The aim was to assess the corneal endothelium, post-operative visual outcome and complications following keratoplasty for keratoconus. Seventy-six corneal grafts (57 per cent penetrating keratoplasties and 43 per cent deep anterior lamellar keratoplasties) were assessed as part of routine follow-up at the Ophthalmology Department at Gartnavel General Hospital in Glasgow. Routine ophthalmic assessment included visual acuity, slitlamp biomicroscopy and scanning slit confocal microscopy of the central cornea.
