The Pediatric Keratoplasty Association (PKA) is designed to assist pediatric ophthalmologists, corneal surgeons, and others in the diagnosis and management of pediatric corneal cases through the exchange of ideas and information. This network will enable ophthalmologists to seek advice from their peers on the technical difficulties and challenges of individual cases.

The Association will facilitate data collection on the success rate associated with various types of surgical procedures.

The PKA will also address the many non-ophthalmic issues (i.e., family counseling, genetic analysis, etc.) that arise in the care of these children. Patient's families will be able to use the association as a referral source.

To date, more than 400 ophthalmologists from the United States and throughout the world are members of the PKA. Over 100 of these doctors actively perform corneal transplant surgery on children and infants. The PKA has one meeting a year at the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

Please join with us in networking our knowledge and experience so that we may better serve out patients and their families.
