The prospective study was carried out at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, medical college, Jabalpur, from 2017-2020, on 30 recipients, who underwent penetrating keratoplasty. The results of the surgery were studied prospectively over a period of 6 months, with follow up at 7 days, 1 month, month and 6 months. Study design: Longitudinal follow up. In our study, penetrating keratoplasty done for optical indications (67%) resulted in fairly good visual outcome, compared to those done for therapeutic indications (23%). The most common complication was corneal vascularisation (56%), and least common was secondary glaucoma (6.66%).
