Mike Tappin instructs on DALK at the American Academy of Ophthalmologists

2nd January 2013

This week the American Academy of Ophthalmologists welcomed LaserVision surgeon Mike Tappin to instruct on DALK.

Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) is a newer method of corneal surgical procedure that selectively removes the diseased anterior layers of the cornea and retains the healthy innermost layer (endothelium). As the inner layer is retained the body does not recognize the donor tissue, hence there is no risk of rejection, and steroid medications need not be continued for a long duration.
