This textbook discusses the latest techniques used in corneal transplantation and provides guidance to fellows and corneal surgeons on their application and patient selection. Traditionally, penetrating keratoplasty was the standard corneal transplantation procedure. However, over the last 15 years, significant advancements have been made in developing new surgical techniques. Today, most keratoplasty procedures are performed as intricate lamellar procedures, aided by microkeratomes, femtosecond lasers, or sophisticated surgical dissection techniques. Corneal Transplantation comprehensively covers these and other advancements, which have contributed to faster visual recovery, greater ocular stability, and reduced risk of rejection episodes for keratoplasty patients.
