Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Keratoplasty (FLAK)
The purpose of this study will be to determine optimal surgical technique for performing FLAK including laser parameters, keratoplasty shape and suture technique in order to standardize surgical technique and to collect safety and efficacy data. This will be compared to data of patients with full thickness PKP to measure visual outcomes, refraction, astigmatism, surgical methods and wound healing.
