DMEK:

We routinely use Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty, the latest iteration of endothelial keratoplasty, for our patients with endothelial dysfunction.

DSAEK:

In our practice, Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty is reserved for patients that are poor candidates for DMEK.

Ultra Thin DSAEK:

This is a variant of DSAEK where two cuts are made of the donor tissue to yield even thinner (50-100 microns) posterior discs for endothelial keratoplasty.

DALK:

The big bubble technique is our preferred way to do deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty.

SALK:

Superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty is performed for pathology located very anteriorly in the cornea.

PKP:

In our practice, a full-thickness keratoplasty is done in patients with pathology involving all layers of the cornea.

KPro:

A keratoprosthesis can be performed for full-thickness (Boston KPro) and lamellar (KeraKlear KPro) cases.

Superficial Keratectomy:

This procedure is done to remove superficial corneal pathology.
