    This article details the authors' experience with a relatively unknown technique for covering exposed ends of transscleral sutures. During combined transscleral suturing of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) with a penetrating keratoplasty, buttons from the excised recipient cornea are sutured with 10-0 nylon over the protruding suture ends. This technique has been used successfully in four cases.
