Updates in Corneal Transplantation Techniques

Updates in corneal transplantation techniques have significantly improved outcomes for patients requiring corneal transplants. Traditional full-thickness penetrating keratoplasty (PK) has been largely replaced by newer, more selective procedures such as Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). These techniques involve transplanting only the endothelial layer or a combination of endothelium and Descemet's membrane, leading to faster visual recovery, reduced risk of graft rejection, and improved long-term graft survival. Additionally, advancements in femtosecond laser technology have enhanced the precision and reproducibility of corneal transplant procedures, facilitating more predictable outcomes and minimizing surgical complications. These updates in corneal transplantation techniques represent significant progress in the field of corneal surgery, ultimately benefiting patients by preserving vision and improving quality of life.
