In Ontario, approximately 1,150 people receive a corneal transplant every year. On top of this - more than 500 people undergo other ocular procedures with donated tissue.
Corneal transplant surgery has a 95% success rate and typically takes about 45 - 60 minutes to complete. During the operation, the damaged tissue is replaced with a clear, healthy cornea from a deceased eye donor.
You may need corneal transplant surgery if you have experienced trauma or injury to the cornea, or if you have scarring, infection, or a hereditary condition. If your vision cannot be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and if you have chronic painful swelling, you might be a candidate for surgery.
To find out if corneal transplantation is right for you, contact your Ophthalmologist.
