Osteo-Odonto keratoprosthesis: Tooth for an Eye

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Smitha Sharan, Dr. Brunda K, Dr. Sreeharsha TV and Dr. Pradeep Chandra K
ABSTRACT:Face is the mirror of the mind and the eyes serves as a window to the soul. The sensory system is accountable for providing information to the brain regarding where the body appears in reference to the horizon. Poor vision may lead to loss of balance. Corneal disease is the second most common cause of blindness in the world and occurs in association with a severely damaged corneal and ocular surface. Osteo-Odonto Keratoprosthesis (OOKP) is a surgical procedure to restore vision where the diseased cornea is replaced with an artificial cornea. OOKP consists of autologous tissue derived from tooth and bone that surrounds a central PMMA Optic (Poly Methyl Methacrylate). This review discusses the types, parts, indications, contraindications, surgical techniques and complications of Osteo-Odonto Keratoprosthesis.
