Hi gavla and welcome,
I don't know for sure, but I would have thought it's very unlikely. Wouldn't inserting a 'foreign body' into a graft lead to a high risk of rejection of the graft? If the problem is that the graft still gives an irregular surface and a lot of astigmatism, then it is possible to have surgery to improve the shape of the graft in some cases. And many of us need contact lenses on top of a graft to get the best vision.
