A cornea transplant is a surgical procedure to replace part of your cornea with healthy corneal tissue to help improve your vision. Your cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped surface of your eye that accounts for a large part of your eye's focusing power.
The main regulating cells of the cornea can become dysfunctional, damaged, or destroyed, so the cornea fills up with fluid and becomes swollen and cloudy, and causes blurry vision. The cornea can also suffer damage from trauma, infections, and conditions which change its shape and clarity. A corneal transplant can restore vision, reduce pain, and improve the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea.
Depending on a patient’s condition we have extensive experience in both traditional corneal transplants and innovative transplants such as DSEK, DMEK, Penetrating Keratoplasty, Femtosecond Laser Corneal Transplantation, and Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK).
