Persistent donor corneal epithelial defects following penetrating keratoplasty may lead to graft failure. We herein describe a method for providing corneal protection using a temporary suture tarsorrhaphy. This technique is simple and completely reversible, and it allows continued observation and instillation of topical medication during the postoperative period.
