Supplementary Material

This video shows combined DMEK-S and cataract surgery. The preparation of the donor cornea is shown at the beginning, followed by the main- and side- port incisions and the injection of the viscoelastic solution. The continual curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) is performed before descemethorhexis. Facoemulsification and lens implantation are done without the use of any viscoelastic material. The lamella is implanted into the anterior chamber using the Solution Implantation Technique and is well centered. After centration, the lamella is fixated to the recipient cornea using an air bubble.
