Abstract

Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss post-keratoplasty and an important cause of graft failure. With newer techniques, such as lamellar, endothelial, and laser-Assisted keratoplasty as well as keratoprosthesis gaining popularity, clinicians will need to consider the incidence, risks, evaluation, and management of glaucoma for each type of keratoplasty when determining which type of transplant may be most appropriate. A comprehensive literature search of glaucoma in the setting of corneal transplantation was performed and serves as the basis for this review. Preexisting glaucoma and aphakia are notable risk factors. Patients that are candidates for deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty may benefit from reduced rates of post-keratoplasty glaucoma. Although glaucoma also complicates eyes with Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty, the severity is less and the intraocular pressure is more easily controlled when compared to penetrating keratoplasty. Endothelial keratoplasty creates unique perioperative issues mostly related to management of anterior chamber air bubbles.
