Cornea Transplant (Keratoplasty)

Keratoplasty, also known as corneal transplantation, is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy cornea from a donor. The cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye and plays a crucial role in focusing light into the eye.

Keratoplasty can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including corneal scarring, thinning, clouding and swelling, as well as some forms of corneal dystrophy and degeneration. The procedure can also be used to correct certain refractive errors, such as astigmatism.

There are several types of keratoplasty, including penetrating keratoplasty, where the entire thickness of the cornea is replaced, and lamellar keratoplasty, where only the affected layers of the cornea are replaced. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and can take several hours to complete.

Following the procedure, depending on the type of keratoplasty and the individual’s healing process, patients will need several weeks to several months to recover. Close follow-up care with an ophthalmologist is necessary to monitor the healing process and ensure the best possible outcome.
