    Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Historically, obtaining accurate measurement of corneal pachymetry was not a critical part of tissue evaluations performed by the eye bank. Simply noting the presence and perceived severity of stromal edema with increased corneal thickness would be reported as part of slit-lamp evaluation of a cornea. However, as endothelial keratoplasty began to become more common around 2006, accurate corneal pachymetry of donor tissue became increasingly important (Fig. 1).1 In the mid-2000s, when donor preparation for Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) began being performed in the eye bank setting, the ability to accurately measure corneal thickness became critical.2–4 ...
