Congenital corneal edema is due to either primary (ie, endothelial dystrophies) or secondary (ie, congenital glaucoma) endothelial failure. Loss of corneal transparency due to any of these etiologies causes visual deprivation and consequent ampblyopia of various degrees. Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK) has been the gold standard for treatment of congenital edema in the pediatric age group. DSAEK offers several advantages over PK.
