PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of preoperative graft thickness (GT) on final visual acuity and speed of vision recovery after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). METHODS The best spectacle-corrected acuity (BSCVA) was measured after DSAEK was performed at 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 months. A regression analysis was performed to determine whether GT predicted the BSCVA across each time gate. The time to achieve the "1-year maximum BSCVA" was determined to assess the… CONTINUE READING
