Corneal transplantation have been performed for several decades, follow-up time in some centers now exceeds 30 years. Published long term (10 years and up) graft survivals vary considerably from center to center. These variations may be explained by differences in case-mix and surgical techniques used.
The investigators aim to better understand the factors associated with long term graft survival.
