Brief Answer:
Regular medical follow ups.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Success rate of a deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty is above 85% post 10 years of surgery. As per the discharge papers, surgery was performed well and post operatively the patient was okay.

If all instructions, medications and follow up are done as advised by doctor, the success rate is as high as 85% even 10 years after surgery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you.
