The treatment of opaque cornea as a result of a burn is challenging, because the cornea often re-opacifies even after transplantation. One of the main risk factors is the deformity of the eyelids, and we have developed a new treatment for this. Preliminary repair of the lower eyelid is done by an auricular composite graft before transplantation, so that the grafted materials can be safely protected by the eyelids. The results of treatment since have greatly improved. Preliminary repair of the eyelid is an effective way to secure successful transplantation.
