New surgical techniques in lamellar keratoplasty, including phototherapeutic keratectomy, automated lamellar keratectomy, plano-epikeratoplasty, deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty, combined amniotic membrane and limbal transplantation, large-diameter corneoscleral lamellar keratoplasty, and posterior lamellar keratoplasty, have recently become available. These procedures broaden the array of treatments for corneal disorders and may be used as alternatives to penetrating keratoplasty.
