Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty

Late stage corneal endothelial failure can significantly affect vision and corneal transplantation may be required.  As only the inside layers of the cornea require replacement, targeted corneal transplantation is appropriate.  This technique is called Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty.  Benefits compared to traditional corneal transplantation include:

  • A safer surgical procedure
  • Faster visual recovery
  • More predictable outcomes
  • Lower risk of transplant rejection

Dr. Beltz is a leader in the field of endothelial keratoplasty.  Feel free to ask her about any new developments or techniques.
