We describe surgical techniques used in the preparation of the corneal tissue to allow an optimal use of it, to perform at least two lamellar keratoplasties, Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) and Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) with each tissue.
One corneal tissue is used routinely to treat two patients, contributing to reducing cases of blindness of corneal origin in developing countries with shortage of donor tissues for keratoplasty.
