To evaluate the timeline of visual rehabilitation with the new corneal triple procedure
102 eyes of 95 patients underwent Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty combined with cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation, between June 2006 and December 2008 for the indication of Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy and cataract. The IOLMaster interferometer was used to calculate intraocular lens power with the goal of emmetropia allowing for 1.5 D of hyperopic shift. Uncorrected visual acuity was evaluated at the six-week postoperative point on 88 eyes.
81 of 88 patients (92%) obtained an uncorrected visual acuity of 20/50 or better
The new corneal triple procedure is an effective method of surgical intervention for the visual rehabilitation of patients with combined Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy and cataract.
