Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Firozabad​

A cornea transplant, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy one from a donor. The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped surface at the front of the eye that helps focus light. A transplant is usually needed when other treatments, such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, or medications, can no longer improve vision.

Cornea transplant surgery is complex and requires highly trained surgeons. In most cases, it is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home the same day.

If you are considering a cornea transplant in Firozabad, be sure to consult with an experienced eye surgeon who can answer all your questions and help you make the best decision for your individual needs.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are a variety of types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. PK is the most common type of corneal transplant surgery, performed on nearly half of all patients who receive a cornea transplant. The surgery involves cutting into the center of the eye to remove the damaged eye tissue and replace it with healthy donor tissue from another part of the body. 

‘DSEK is a less invasive version of PK that is typically used on patients who have suffered a significant injury to their eye or for those who have severe vision impairment caused by an inherited disorder. In DSEK, the surgeon makes small cuts into the surface of the eye instead of cutting into the center. DSAEK is a more advanced form of DSEK that involves making multiple smaller cuts into the surface of the eye. DMEK is a less invasive version of DSAEK that uses suction to pull out diseased or damaged tissue from within the eye and then replaces it with healthy donor tissue. 

DALK is a more advanced type of DMEK that removes more than just diseased or damaged tissue; it also removes any scarring left from prior surgeries or injuries to the eye. SALK is an even less invasive version of DALK that uses microscopic stitches to close up any incisions made in during DMEK surgery. 

Finally, artificial cornea transplants (keratoprosthesis) are becoming increasingly popular as they offer many benefits over traditional corneal transplant surgeries. Keratoprosthesis are made from either plastic or glass and are surgically implanted into the eye to replace the damaged cornea. Keratoprosthesis offer many benefits over traditional corneal transplants, including a shorter surgery time, less pain and discomfort after surgery, a quicker recovery time, and a lower risk of rejection. However, keratoprosthesis does have a higher rate of complication than traditional corneal transplants and is not yet as widely available. If you are considering a cornea transplant, talk to your doctor about all of your options to find the best surgery for you.
