Corneal Transplant (Artificial and Conventional)

  • What is Corneal Transplant (Artificial and Conventional)?

    When the cornea becomes cloudy due to disease or injury, light rays are unable to pass through to reach the retina (the light-sensitive portion of the eye). This can lead to poor vision or blindness. The cornea can be damaged by:

    • Corneal injuries
    • Infections
    • Age-Related degeneration

    Corneal Transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces the cloudy/scarred cornea with a clear donor cornea to improve your vision.

    The usual corneal transplant surgery uses a full corneal transplant (called Penetrating Keratoplasty), while a new and more advanced form of partial corneal transplant (called Lamellar Keratoplasty)replaces the diseased parts of the cornea only, leaving your healthy corneal tissue in place.

  • If you have poor vision due to a diseased or cloudy cornea, but have a healthy nerve and retina at the back of your eye, you may benefit from a corneal transplant to restore your vision. As the damaged cornea can look cloudy, replacement with a clear donor cornea can also be a cosmetic improvement.
