Minimizing Endothelial Cell Loss Caused by Orientation Stamps on Preloaded Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty Grafts
Conclusions: Loss of endothelial cells associated with graft-stamping was greater in preloaded tissue than in prestripped tissue and was less with a smaller F-stamp than with a larger S-stamp. Using a smaller stamp could help minimize ECL in prestripped and preloaded DMEK grafts. (Source: Cornea)

Evaluation of Autologous Blood in Pterygium Surgery With Conjunctival Autograft
Purpose: Autologous blood has been used exploratively with conjunctival autograft in pterygium surgery.

Randomized Study of Collagen Cross-Linking With Conventional Versus Accelerated UVA Irradiation Using Riboflavin With Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose: Two-Year Results
Conclusions: Improvement in visual acuity and maximum keratometric reading 2 years after CXL was found after both conventional and accelerated UVA irradiation using methylcellulose–riboflavin. This suggests that when using riboflavin with methylcellulose, the less time-consuming accelerated protocol is a valuable and effective option in CXL treatment. (Source: Cornea)

Using Deep Learning in Automated Detection of Graft Detachment in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty: A Pilot Study
In this study, a total of 1172 AS-OCT images (609: attached graft; 563: detached graft) were used to train and test a deep convolutional neural network to automatically detect GD after DMEK surgery in AS-OCT images. GD was defined as a not completely attached graft. After training with 1072 of these images (559: attached graft; 513: detached graft), the created classifier was tested with the remaining 100 AS-OCT scans (50: attached graft; 50 detached: graft). Hereby, a probability score for GD (GD score) was determined for each of the tested OCT images. Results: The mean GD score was 0.88 ± 0.2 in the GD group an...

Intraocular Light Scatter in Eyes With the Boston Type 1 Keratoprosthesis
Purpose: The Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) is the most commonly used artificial cornea. It has been proven to be successful for severe corneal disease not amenable to keratoplasty. We have observed our patients reporting debilitating glare despite attaining good visual acuities. This motivated us to objectively measure light scatter in eyes with a KPro.
