New keratoconus treatment - Bowman layer transplantation - A State of Sight #88

The Melles CorneaClinic Rotterdam at the Netherlands Institute for Innovate Ocular Surgery recently published their findings for a potential breakthrough treatment for advanced keratoconus. Watch this episode of A State of Sight with Isaac Porter, MD to learn more about selective Bowman layer transplantation.

With this treatment, patients with keratoconus were able to use contact lenses after surgery and improve their vision. At this stage of keratoconus, the other primary options to restore vision are full thickness (penetrating keratoplasty) and partial thickness (deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty). With this innovative treatment, patients may be able to keep their own cornea longer and delay the need for larger transplants.
