Lens expulsion is an unwanted complication that can occur during PK in eyes with posterior pressure. High risk patients include those needing large graft diameter, strong blink reflex/tight interpalpebral fissure, keratoconus, large body habits and sleep apnoea. We demonstrate a simple technique of using a basket suture to prevent lens expulsion during penetrating keratoplasty.
