A 14-month-old child with a central corneal scar underwent rotational autografting of his cornea to clear his visual axis. This was accomplished through eccentric trephination and 180 degree rotation of the central cornea. A preoperative image of the patient's cornea was manipulated digitally using a common commercial imageprocessing software package. This allowed accurate prediction of the best trephine size and location prior to surgery. Digital imaging played an important role in preoperative surgical planning and demonstrates the potential for tele-ophthalmology.
