Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is the procedure to replace the recipient's corneal stroma, leaving healthy Descemet's membrane (DM) and endothelium, which is an alternative procedure to treat keratoconus with stable visual outcomes. In addition, it can decrease the risk of graft rejection, postoperative complication, and delayed endothelial cell density decay compared to penetrating keratoplasty (PKP).A retrospective study evaluating outcomes in patients with keratoconus found that when compared to femtosecond laser-enabled keratoplasty (FLEK), femtosecond laser deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (FsDALK) had similar overall visual and refractive outcomes with a statistically significant lower overall graft rejection rate....
