The Danger of Pupilliary Block after Partial Corneal Transpl
Although very, very rare, pupillary block ?is a specific type of angle closure glaucoma that can be caused by DMEK surgery.

How can DMEK surgery cause pupillary block? The eye continually produces a fluid called aqueous humor in the posterior chamber of the eye (the large round chamber behind the lens of the eye in which is located the retina and optic nerve). This fluid, the aqueous humor, then flows around the outer edge of the lens of the eye and under the iris before flowing through the pupil into the anterior chamber of the eye (the narrow space between the back of the cornea and front of the lens where the iris rests).....
