Epikeratoplasty is a form of refractive corneal surgery in which a lens made of human corneal tissue is sutured onto the deepithelialized surface of the patient's cornea. The indications of epikeratoplasty for the correction of aphakia and keratoconus are discussed. We also report the results of epikeratophakia for the correction of aphakia in eight eyes and for the treatment of keratoconus in five eyes.
