    Slit-Beam Technique for DMEK Orientation

    By Francis W. Price Jr., MD
    Cornea/External Disease

    After injection of the stained donor graft in Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), Dr. Francis Price uses an Eidolon handheld slit lamp to ensure proper orientation of the graft. If the reflected edges of the donor tissue curl up, the surgeon can be assured the endothelium is positioned correctly, facing toward the iris.
