Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK)
If you’re experiencing vision problems due to corneal endothelial dysfunction (the last layer of the cornea), your doctor may recommend Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK). This procedure is a type of corneal transplant that replaces damaged or diseased corneal tissue with healthy donor tissue. Dr. Cohen has performed hundreds of DSAEK procedures, helping restore vision to his patients. In this article, we’ll explore the reasons why DSAEK is done, the recovery time, and the benefits of the procedure.
