Current Opinion in Ophthalmology
- Refractive surgery after Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) has become a preferred surgical correction for endothelial dysfunction. Patient dissatisfaction secondary to refractive error is emerging as a significant complaint after anatomically successful DSEK. This article reviews refractive surgeries after DSEK to address this problem.
- Application of the femtosecond laser LASIK microkeratome in eye banking To review the literature for recent advancements in the femtosecond laser technology with regard to its applications in corneal transplantation and eye banking.
- Targeted corneal transplantation Corneal transplantation surgery has moved from an era of conventional penetrating keratoplasty to selective replacement of the diseased corneal layer with complementary healthy donor corneal tissue. Anterior lamellar transplantation surgeries do not involve replacement of corneal endothelium, consequently eliminating the occurrence of endothelial rejection.

- Laser in situ keratomileusis to manage refractive errors after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty Patients with compound myopic astigmatism after DALK and a spherical equivalent (SE) between −2.50 diopters (D) and −8.00 D had LASIK as a single-step procedure, correcting the manifest refraction error. The visual and refractive results at 1 month, 3 months, and the last follow-up were compared with preoperative values.
- Outcomes of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty in phakic eyes To determine the clinical outcomes of isolated Descemet membrane transplantation (ie, Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty ) in phakic eyes.
- Three-Year Visual Acuity Outcomes after Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty To evaluate the long-term improvement of visual acuity after Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) surgery.
- Graft Dislocation and Hypotony after Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty in Patients with Previous Glaucoma Surgery To determine if patients with prior glaucoma surgery experience higher rates of postoperative graft dislocation after Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and to determine if postoperative hypotony may be a risk factor in these patients.
