PURPOSE To evaluate visual outcomes, endothelial cell density and complications following Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). METHODS This study included 40 consecutive eyes that underwent DMEK for various pathologies involving the corneal endothelium. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and endothelial cell density (ECD) were measured and compared before and 6 months after surgery. RESULTS Out of 40 eyes, 34 eyes (85%) had BCVA ranging from 0.5 to 0.7 LogMAR 6 months… CONTINUE READING
