Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is becoming an increasingly popular method of corneal transplantation. Dr Alain Saad explains that this is likely due to the quicker recovery time, better visual acuity, and lower complication rate associated with DMEK. He also describes some of the...
It has long been known that temperature can affect the cornea. In the second part of Dr Farhad Hafezi’s interview, he discusses corneal cross-linking and how this procedure can benefit from reducing the corneal temperature. Recent studies have found that oxygen is a regulator of cross-linking...
