A series of 120 consecutive human penetrating keratoplasties was performed using modified McCarey-Kaufman (M-K) medium. The medium has been altered by changing the buffer system, adding a pH indicator, and using a different antibiotic from that originally formulated. There were no cases of primary donor failure and 95 percent clear grafts after 1 year.
