Corneal Transplant Surgery Package

Corneal transplantation is a surgery in which the damaged part of the patient's cornea is removed and replaced with a new, healthy cornea.

Age Limit for Corneal Transplant Surgery
  • You Should be older than 40 years.
Surgical Procedure

Before corneal transplant surgery, some necessary pre-operative tests and eye examinations should be carried out. Usually before the patient is hospitalized, the hospital communicates with the Eye Bank for reserving the cornea, but anyway, on the day of surgery, the suitable cornea for the corneal transplantation may not be available in the Eye Bank, and as a result, surgery is postponed to another day. The surgery is done under general anesthesia.

Post-Operative Care
  1. Wear large sunglasses or eyeglasses with resistant glass to prevent damage to the eye.
  2. Avoid major contact sports such as wrestling, judo, soccer where there is a chance to eye injuries.
  3. Avoid activities in which the eye may be poked, rubbed or touched.
  4. When you are swimming or doing physical activities, be sure to wear protective eye wears.
