The corneal surgeon's dream of restoring endothelial function in eyes with corneal edema with a simple technique that provides rapid visual rehabilitation has been realized in the last decade. Future refinements in the DSEK technique should further enhance the utility of this procedure. As the possibility for ex vivo expansion of the recipient's own endothelial cells becomes a practical reality, DSEK-like procedures may prove to be the methodology for implantation of the expanded cell line.
