Postoperative complications after corneal transplantation are quite common and pose a substantial risk to the probability of graft survival, particularly if they are not promptly identified and treated. Timely follow up and compliance to therapy is mandatory for improving outcomes. Poor adherence to treatment regimens poses a significant problem after corneal grafts and substantially contributes to increased chances of graft failure, culminating in rising health care costs [1]. Missed appointments are also an important cause of inefficiency in health care delivery and are associated with substantial monetary costs.
