Purpose: To investigate nursing and cooperation of femtosecond laser-assisted endothelial keratoplasty (EK).
Methods: Preoperative visit and adequate preoperative preparation were proceeded in 19 patients (19 eyes) underwent femtosecond laser-assisted EK, instrument commissioning and equipment preparation were performed before the surgery. We mastered the surgical procedures, guided patients for cooperating the operation, and cooperated closely with surgeon during operation. Management of intraoperative and postoperative body position were accomplished, instruments and equipment were well processed after operation.
