Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty in patient with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome

One eye with ICE syndrome underwent DSAEK for corneal decompensation after cataract surgery and was followed up for 24 months. DSAEK was successfully performed in this case. No graft dislocation occurred. At first post-operative visit patient showed visual improvement to 20/160 with pinhole. IOP: 10, corneal clarity has significantly improved. At 6 months, VAPH was 20/200 and corneal clarity allowed to treat significant posterior capsular opacity then VAPH improved to 20/40. At last follow up, with correction of the compound hyperopic astigmatism the patient reached VA 20/60, normal IOP, and stable iris appearance. In conclusion, Simple DSEK might be a safe option for ICE patients with pseudophakic corneal decompensating.
