People who benefit from corneal transplantation are those whose vision is limited due to a damaged or diseased cornea. Other causes of vision impairment such as a hazy cataract or a swollen retina cannot benefit from this procedure.
Like other surgical procedures, complications may occur following a corneal transplant. Your ophthalmologist will go over the risks with you.
The procedure is not painful and is completed while under a local anesthetic. After the procedure, patients may experience some discomfort for a few days.
Corneal transplants are performed routinely and have an excellent success rate. Unlike other transplant procedures, corneal transplant recipients do not have to take immunosuppressive medication (anti-rejection therapy).
