I describe a technique for transscleral fixation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) combined with penetrating keratoplasty. Partial-thickness trephination of the cornea is followed by full-thickness penetration of the anterior chamber at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock through 5.5 and 2.0mm incisions, respectively. Scleral fixation of a PC IOL is performed through the incisions under a closed chamber followed by replacement of the diseased graft with a donor button. The results in 5 eyes of 5 patients with aphakic bullous keratopathy and lack of capsule support are reported.
