Experience the Joy of Clear Vision

Corneal Transplantation in simpler terms is an operation where the cornea of a patient is removed and replaced by a cornea from the donor. This is called as corneal grafting or keratoplasty. Cornea transplantation is usually done to improve the eyesight, replace the damaged cornea or to gain eyesight.

By using Contact lenses we might be able to delay or eliminate the need for transplantation and also there are many other semi-surgical procedures that can be done if the damage can be recognized before getting worse. These all can be only considered by the doctor, but the ultimate solution to cornea disorder is the corneal transplantation.
This surgery does not take too long. In the case of partial corneal transplantation, it only takes 20 to 30 minutes and for the conventional corneal transplantation surgery might last in between 40 to 50 minutes.

What is the success rate of corneal transplantation?
The overall success rate of a corneal transplant is about 85%. So that means 15% chances are there to fail or to cause risks that can be caused due to the rejection of new cornea by our body or even can be caused due to infection.
Normally corneal transplantation is a safe procedure, but in some cases the possible risks that can affect are bleeding, infection on cornea, and swelling, increased pressure in the eyeball that can cause glaucoma. Sometimes the stitches used to secure the donor cornea might become a risk factor.
