Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Ghaziabad​

A cornea transplant, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy one. The cornea is the clear, outermost layer of the eye and plays a vital role in focusing vision. A transplant can improve vision in people who have cloudy or distorted vision due to conditions such as advanced keratoconus, previous failed cornea transplants, severe corneal scars or dystrophies. 

If you are considering a cornea transplant, it is important to consult with an experienced ophthalmologist who specializes in this type of surgery. At Mantracare Ghaziabad we offer comprehensive eye care services and our team of experts are dedicated to providing high-quality care to all our patients.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are many different types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with their own specific benefits and drawbacks.

Penetrating keratoplasty (PK), also known as deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), is the most common type of corneal transplant surgery. In PK, the surgeon removes the damaged eye tissue and replaces it with healthy donor tissue from within the patient’s eye. This procedure is usually a safe and successful procedure, though there is a small risk of rejection.

Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK) is a more advanced form of PK that uses special instruments to remove much of the donor tissue without damaging the eyeball. This allows for a quicker and more accurate recovery for patients, who typically see better results than those who receive PK procedures.

Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is a newer procedure that uses special membranes to cover the damaged areas of the cornea. The membranes help protect the underlying corneal tissue while allowing light to pass through unimpeded. DMEK is also less invasive than other types of PK procedures and has a shorter recovery time than traditional PK procedures.

Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is another type of PK that uses slightly different surgical techniques to achieve similar results as DSEK/ DSAEK. DALK is often thought of as a safer alternative to DSEK/ DSAEK, since the central tissue and endothelial cells remain intact. The type of corneal transplant surgery that is right for you depends on your unique needs and current eye health situation.
