DMEK leads to mild hyperopic shift, long-term refractive stability

AMSTERDAM — Corneal deturgescence following Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty leads to a mild hyperopic shift, probably caused by changes in the posterior surface of the cornea. “After these minor changes, refraction remains stable in the long term,”  Marina Rodriguez, MD, said at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting.
