  • Describe the differences between the Boston type I and type II keratoprostheses
  • Describe the osteo-odonto keratoprosthesis
  • Summarize the patient selection process
  • Select an appropriate keratoprosthesis for a particular patient
  • Outline the surgical steps for keratoprosthesis implementation
  • Recognize and manage possible postoperative complications  

Focal Points issues are practical, hands-on discussions of the clinical issues you face daily. Each issue delivers high-quality, trusted ophthalmic information written and reviewed by leading experts.
