Fungal infections after keratoplasty on upswingPost-keratoplasty fungal infections are becoming increasing more common, and the risk is significantly higher after DSEK compared with PK.
Why recalibration for EKR devices may be crucialFurther calibrations for the equivalent keratometry readings (EKR) obtained by the Pentacam High Resolution (HR) (Oculus, Germany) should be conducted before they are used for total corneal power assessment in post-LASIK eyes, researchers said.
Treating refractive error with corneal cross-linking
