Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are a variety of types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. Penetrating keratoplasty (PK), Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK), Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), and superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty (SALK) are all types of artificial cornea transplant surgeries. 

PK is the most common type of artificial cornea transplant surgery, performed on approximately 70% of all patients who receive a corneal transplant. DSEK is a more advanced form of PK, which uses a special laser to cut away the donor’s damaged epithelium and Bowman’s layer without damaging the underlying stroma. 

DSAEK is a less invasive version of DSEK that uses ultrasound to help guide the laser along the donor surface. DMEK is a similar procedure to DSAEK, but instead of using ultrasonic waves, it uses heat to destroy the donor epithelium. DALK is a more complex form of DMEK that uses several techniques to remove the damaged epithelium and Bowman’s layer without damaging the underlying stroma. SALK is a less common type of artificial cornea transplant surgery that uses super glue to attach the replacement epithelium directly to the stroma.
