Corneal Transplants

Each year over 40,000 corneal transplants are performed in the United States alone. It is a very well established procedure that has resulted in returning good vision to numerous people previously left with no alternatives for visual improvement.

Corneal Transplants are designed for an individual whose vision cannot be corrected to a satisfactory level by glasses, contact lenses or other surgeries. Typically, poor vision caused by a cornea in this condition is a result of corneal failure after another eye surgery, Keratoconus, Fuchs’ dystrophy or scarring following an injury to the eye.

Another alternative surgery you may wish to discuss with your doctor is known as Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty or DSAEK. Unlike corneal transplantation, where the entire cornea is replaced, DSAEK only replaces the damaged cell layer. This typically allows for quicker healing and recovery time than that for corneal transplantation. You and your doctor will be able to determine if DSAEK or a Corneal Transplant is the right alternative for you.

If you believe you are a candidate for a corneal transplant, please call our office to schedule a consultation.
