MEIRELES, Antonio Carlos Manhas; BECHARA, Samir Jacob  and  MARTINES, Eduardo. LASIK for hyperopia correction pos DSAEK(Descement Stripping Automated Endotelial Keratoplasty). Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2016, vol.75, n.4, pp.333-335. ISSN 0034-7280.

DSAEK (Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty) is one of the options for corneal endothelium disease, which in some patients can result in a residual hyperopia after the procedure. Usually 6 to 12 months after corneal transplantation refraction is already stable. This report describes a therapeutic option used in a 54 years old patient with Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy submitted to cataract and corneal transplant that resulted in residual hyperopia, three years after the procedure the best corrected vision was 20/20 with a refraction of +3.25 -1.00 (5 º) treated with Hyperopic - LASIK (Laser-assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) with satisfactory visual result.

Keywords : keratomieleusis, laser in situ; Corneal diseases; Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty/methods; Case reports.
