Squint Surgery

Encompasses several techniques which selectively replace diseased layers of the cornea while leaving healthy layers in place. Advantages include improved tectonic integrity of the eye and reduced risk of rejection. Disadvantages include the technically challenging nature of these procedures which replace portions of a structure only 500 microns thick, and reduced optical performance of the donor/recipient interface compared to full thickness keratoplasty.
