This video describes a new surgical technique for keratoconus, diamond knife-assisted deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (Dia-DALK). Dia-DALK has been performed successfully in 19 eyes with no intraoperative complications. Postoperative astigmatism was 3.0 D in all eyes. The authors claim Dia-DALK is safe and predictable and requires only a minimal learning curve for any corneal surgeon.
