Candida Keratitis: Epidemiology, Management, and Clinical Outcomes
Conclusions: Candida keratitis accounts for the most identified fungal keratitis cases in this temperate climate area. An exposure to multiple risk factors appears necessary. A surgical intervention is required for the resolution of most cases. Different subspecies of Candida ultimately resulted in similar clinical outcomes. (Source: Cornea)

Examining the Impact of Corneal Tissue Transnational Activity, and Transplantation, on Import and Export Nations: A Review of the Literature
Conclusions: All aspects of CT TNA are grossly under-reported, resulting in our inability to effectively analyze the overall impact to export and import nations. The few clinical studies in our review concluded that despite endothelial cell loss and other risk factors, imported CT appears comparable with domestic CT and remains an option in the absence of domestic supply. Nonclinical aspects (eg, ethical, equitable, and economic) have also not been adequately addressed. (Source: Cornea)

Corneal Light Scatter After Ultrathin Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty Versus Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty in Descemet Endothelial Thickness Comparison Trial: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Conclusions: Both UT-DSAEK and DMEK experience an improvement in the degree of corneal light scatter after surgery. However, there was no difference in densitometry between the 2 groups at month 12. Therefore, other factors such as higher order aberrations in the posterior cornea rather than stromal–stromal interface haze mediate the superior visual outcomes in DMEK compared with UT-DSAEK.
