ALK Tissue for Transplant
Saving Sight provides tissue for anterior lamellar keratoplasty (ALK) that is prepared according to your specific requirements.
Prior to the procedure, a pre-processing OCT image of the tissue is performed to determine the thickness of the cornea. Using the calculated thickness measurement, a microkeratome head is selected to cut the anterior portion to the preferred thickness requested by the physician. The Moria ACP system is used to maintain constant, set pressure behind the cornea during the cut to ensure a uniform cut. After the cut is performed, a post-processing OCT is completed to ensure the cornea has been cut to the preferred size. A specular microscopy and full slit lamp evaluation is also completed post-processing and provided in the paperwork packet sent to in the shipment.
