    Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography in Lamellar Keratoplasties: Indications and Outcomes

    Purpose of Review Lamellar keratoplasties are evolving techniques to selectively replace diseased or opacified layers of the cornea. In recent years, the popularity of lamellar keratoplasties, especially Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty, Descemet stripping-automated endothelial keratoplasty and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty, increased dramatically, since lamellar surgeries reduce intra- and postoperative complications and achieve faster visual recovery. Nonetheless, the surgical procedures are delicate. Recent Findings Novel imaging techniques, as intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT), may substantially help standardize these procedures to even further reduce intra- and postoperative complications and potentially improve outcome. Summary The present review summarizes the current literature regarding the ...
