Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Cuttack​

Cornea transplant, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a diseased or damaged cornea with a healthy one. The cornea is the clear outer layer of the eye that helps focus light. A transplant can improve vision and provide relief from pain and other symptoms caused by disease or injury.

Cornea transplant surgery is performed at several hospitals in Cuttack. Mantracare is one of the leading hospitals for this surgery in Cuttack. The hospital has a team of experienced surgeons who have performed many successful transplants. The surgery is done under general anesthesia and takes about two hours. After the surgery, patients are usually discharged within 24 hours.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are many types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own unique benefits and drawbacks. Penetrating keratoplasty (PK), Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK), Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty (SALK) are the most common types of corneal transplant surgeries. 

  • PK is a procedure in which the surgeon removes a small amount of the donor eye’s cornea and transplants it into the recipient’s eye. 
  • DSEK/ DSAEK is a similar procedure, but instead of removing a small amount of the donor eye’s cornea, the surgeon makes a small incision in the donor’s eye and removes part of the stroma layer. 
  • DMEK is a procedure in which the surgeon sews together pieces of the donated cornea to form a new artificial cornea. 
  • SALK is similar to DMEK, but instead of using donated pieces of the cornea, the surgeon creates an artificial cornea from scratch using surgery and special materials. 

PK, DSEK/ DSAEK, and DMEK are all considered penetrating procedures because they go through the outermost layer of the eye – the endothelium – which can be delicate and prone to damage. DALK is a non-penetrating procedure that only goes through the outermost layer of the cornea, making it a less invasive option.
