Interlamellar refraction keratoplasty with central keratectomy of superficial laminae of the cornea was used to correct aphakia in 15 patients and the results followed up for 2.5-7 years. This method permits a simultaneous refraction and optic transplantation of the cornea. Corneal refraction was enhanced by 7.2-14.8 diopters (the mean value 11.03 diopters). The technique is an extraocular one and therefore may be widely used for aphakia correction, particularly in cases with superficial opacities of the cornea.
