The effect of a sudden increase in intraocular pressure (IOP) on Eye Bank eyes implanted with a posterior fixation keratoprosthesis PCL5 type (Lacombe) is evaluated. The IOP was artificially increased at a rate close to that observed in direct eye trauma. The critical pressure values causing aqueous humor leak and/or keratoprosthesis extrusion were compared to those found to blow up unoperated eyes. No statistical difference was found between operated and control eyes (6 pairs of eyes). This KPro type showed its efficacy for keratoprosthesis fixation.
