Abstract: The Australian Corneal Graft Registry (ACGR) opened in May 1985 and has now been in operation for 18 years. In that time, we have collected data on over 14,000 corneal grafts. At the time of transplantation, we seek information on the recipient, the donor and the operative procedure. Follow-up then occurs at approximately yearly intervals for an indefinite period. Follow-up only ceases upon loss of the graft, or death or loss-to-follow-up of the patient. At each round of follow-up, we request information on graft and visual outcome, and upon relevant events and treatments. The data are entered into a database and checked for consistency. Descriptive, univariate and multivariate analyses are performed, and the report collated.
