Partial Thickness Corneal Transplantation

DESCEMET STRIPPING ENDOTHELIAL KERATOPLASTY

Descemet Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK) is a corneal transplant procedure. The damaged, small cell layer of the cornea is removed and replaced with donor tissue. DSEK is a good solution for patients with Fuch’s Corneal Dystrophy (FCD) and Bullous Keratopathy.

Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty

Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) is a procedure that removes the damaged Descemet membrane and endothelium from the eye. This unhealthy tissue is then replaced with healthy donor tissue. DMEK is for patients who have corneal diseases such as Fuch's Dystrophy, Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome (ICE) and Posterior Polymorphous Corneal Dystrophy (PPCD).
