LAMELLAR KERATOPLASTY HAS FEWER COMPLICATIONS IN KERATOCONUS WITH EQUAL VISUAL ACUITY RESULTS AS PKP

doi:10.1016/j.ajo.2009.05.028

This study concludes:

Visual acuity outcomes of the lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) technique are comparable with those of penetrating keratoplasty (PK) for keratoconus, whereas DALK surgery results in fewer postoperative complications than PK. DALKa is emerging as a preferred choice among the lamellar techniques for better optical outcome.
