Pseudophakia bullous keratopathy (PBK) and a phakic bullous keratopathy (ABK) refer to the development of irreversible corneal edema as a complication of cataract surgery. The history of PBK parallels the history of the development of the intraocular lens. As surgical techniques and lens design have improved, the incidence of this complication has decreased dramatically. However, it still represents an important cause of visual disability following routine and complicated cataract surgery. First, in a postoperative period edema effects cornea of those patients who undergo before keratorefractive surgery - such as radial keratotomy, or those who has prior corneal opacity after traumas or surgery.
