In eyes with eccentric corneal opacities partially involving the pupillary area, using a rotational corneal autograft, can help restore vision without the immunological complications associated with allografts. In this report, we describe a simple intraoperative method for determining trephine size and placement for rotational corneal autografting. This surgical approach helps in the planning and execution of rotational corneal autografting, to obtain good outcomes.
