The Cornea & DSAEK
Several diseases can effect the cornea, or clear covering of the eye, such as Fuchs Dystrophy, which causes cloudy vision, and Keriticonus, which creates distortion through extreme astigmatism. Surgery can correct some conditions, but in some cases, a corneal transplant is needed. DSAEK is a new, advanced technique that uses a small, suture-less incision to remove just the back layer of the cornea. This provides great results with a much faster recovery time than in traditional cornea transplant surgery.
