Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Ajmer​

A cornea transplant, also called keratoplasty, is a procedure to replace damaged or diseased cornea with healthy donor tissue. This type of transplant is usually performed to improve vision. It may also be done to treat other eye conditions, such as severe infections or injuries.

Cornea transplants are usually successful and can greatly improve vision. However, there is a risk of rejection, in which the body rejects the new tissue. This can often be treated with medication, but it may require another transplant.

Kolhapur is a city in southern India that is home to many hospitals and clinics that offer cornea transplants. The cost of the procedure can vary depending on the hospital and the severity of the condition being treated. However, Kolhapur is generally considered to be a very affordable place for this type of surgery.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

Corneal transplants are a common procedure that help people with significant corneal damage. There are a variety of types of corneal transplants available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.The most common type of corneal transplant is the penetrating keratoplasty (PK). This procedure involves removing the damaged layer of tissue from the inside of the eye and replacing it with an artificial implant. The implant is made from plastic, silicone or metal and is inserted into the eye through a small incision.

The penetrating keratoplasty is the most effective type of transplant for restoring vision in people who have lost their eyesight due to severe corneal damage. It has a high rate of success and few complications. However, the surgery is invasive and can be difficult to perform.

Another type of corneal transplant is the descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK). This procedure replaces damaged layer of tissue on the outside of the eye with an artificial implant that is topped off with a layer of healthy skin taken from elsewhere on your body. The DSEK has a lower success rate than PK but is less invasive.

The descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is similar to DSEK but replaces only part of the damaged layer of tissue on the outside of your eye. This procedure has a higher success rate than DSEK but is more difficult to perform.

Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) is another less common type of transplant. It involves removing the entire damaged layer of tissue from the front of your eye and replacing it with an artificial implant. The DALK has a high rate of success but is very invasive.

Superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty (SALK) is the least invasive type of corneal transplant. It involves removing only the outermost layer of tissue from your eye and replacing it with an artificial implant. The SALK has a lower success rate than PK but is less invasive.

Artificial Cornea Transplant (Keratoprosthesis) is a newer type of transplant that involves implanting an artificial cornea into your eye. This procedure is still being developed and has a high rate of success. It is less invasive than PK but more difficult to perform.
