DMEK in Pictures, A patient’s guide: a photographic guide

Jack Parker MD

Ophthalmology must be the most beautiful medical speciality. The eye is the jewel of the body, and eye doctors are incredibly lucky that so much of the eye can be directly seen and inspected. This is not the case with most organs, like the lungs or the liver or the kidneys, which are all hidden deep inside a person, where only educated guesses can be made about what is actually going on. With this book, we offer you a chance to see what we see — all of pictures before, after, and even during DMEK surgery. We show you these because they are fascinating and amazing, and because we hope they help you better understand and appreciate the elegance and beauty of this operation.
