There is an interest among many domestic corneal surgeons in addressing the global burden of corneal blindness through performing keratoplasty procedures in areas of need and to train international corneal surgeons. However, most of these domestic surgeons are unsure how to proceed or find that their efforts do not achieve the desired results due to myriad factors, including lack of donor tissues, requisite infrastructure, adequate postoperative follow-up, etc. This lecture will review some of the critical factors that determine where and how domestic corneal surgeons can make a difference by developing a sustainable, impactful international keratoplasty skills transfer program.
