Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty
In more advanced cases of keratoconus, sometimes a corneal transplant is necessary to improve vision. There has been significant progress in the field of corneal transplantation since the traditional methods. James has a special interest in the latest method of corneal transplantation for keratoconus, called Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty. Having trained in the highest volume centre in Europe with one of the global pioneers of this technique in Italy, he now he trains other surgeons around Europe how to perform this challenging technique. The main advantage of this technique is that unlike traditional corneal transplantation, it retains the inner layer of your own cornea and therefore the risk of future corneal rejection is much reduced.
