Osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP) is often the sole and last treatment option for visual rehabilitation in severe corneal blindness. Until now there has been no educational video for this complicated procedure. An educational video explaining in detail the surgical steps of the two-staged OOKP procedure, including indications and complications, utilizing surgical videos from patients operated at the University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland, should change this. A useful educational video for the general ophthalmologist as well as the ophthalmic surgeon explaining the indications, outcomes, complications and depicting the crucial surgical steps in detail will result.
