DSAEK

Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) is the newest technique in corneal transplantation currently being used. Compared to penetrating keratoplasty, DSAEK has better speed and degree of visual recovery. Vision is usually restored in one to three months instead of one to two years. In the procedure Descemet's membrane is removed and replaced with that of a donor. As a result of small incisions, the need for sutures is gone. Therefore, the safety and success of this revolutionary procedure is unprecedented, with over 90% of all transplants restoring the recipient's vision.
