Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Bhopal​

A cornea transplant, also called keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy one. The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye and helps focus light. A transplant can improve vision and provide relief from pain and other symptoms caused by corneal damage.

Cornea transplants are usually successful, but there is a risk of rejection, in which the body rejects the new tissue. This can usually be treated with medication, but in some cases, additional surgery may be required. There is also a small risk of complications such as infection or bleeding.

If you are considering a cornea transplant, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor in Bhopal.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are a variety of types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own unique benefits and disadvantages. Penetrating keratoplasty (PK), Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK), Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), and superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty (SALK) are all commonly used in Cornea, and they are all considered advanced procedures.

PK is the most common type of corneal transplant surgery, and it involves removing the damaged layer of the cornea using a special tool called a microkeratome. The Microkeratome cuts through the tough outer layer of the cornea, which then breaks down and falls off. This leaves the healthy inner layer of the cornea behind.

DSEK is similar to PK, but it involves removing just the damaged layer of the cornea. DSEK is often used when there is only minor damage to the surface of the eye, or when other treatments such as cryotherapy or laser therapy have not worked well enough.

DMEK is a more advanced version of DSEK that uses a special tool to remove both the damaged layer of the cornea and part of the underlying stroma (the tissue that holds the cells in place). This allows for a better fit between the new tissue and the existing tissue, and it results in a stronger, more durable transplant.

DALK is another type of corneal transplant surgery that is used to treat more severe cases of corneal damage. DALK involves removing the entire outer layer of the cornea, as well as part of the underlying stroma. This leaves a very thin layer of tissue that is then transplanted with healthy tissue.

SALK is the least invasive type of corneal transplant surgery, and it involves removing only the damaged layer of the cornea. SALK is often used when there is only minor damage to the surface of the eye, or when other treatments such as cryotherapy or laser therapy have not worked well enough.
