The article focuses on a study which found that prior glaucoma surgery correlated with an early postoperative spike in intraocular pressure (IOP) did not negatively affect long-term visual outcomes after Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK). There were three groups of patients in this study. Both visual acuity and intraocular pressure (IOP) were considered as primary outcome measures. Results showed that 18 controls needed glaucoma medication after DSEK. It also found that significant IOP elevation were found in patients after DSEK.
