    In 1986, conjunctival transplantations were performed on 54 patients. Patients with
    severe corneal ulcers, who did not react adequately to local therapy, formed the largest group who were treated in this way, in particular patients in whom the prognosis for a perforating corneal graft was poor. Other indications are: bullous keratopathy, pterygium, trauma, symblepharon, etc.. In general other forms of therapy are tried first before conjunctival transplantations are performed.
