Use of trypan blue dye, endoilluminators and nylon hooks will be demonstrated. Combined procedures such as phototherapeutic keratectomy, anterior lamellar keratoplasty (automated lamellar therapeutic and deep lamellar),and posterior lamellar keratoplasty (Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty triple), and phacoemulsification will be elucidated.
