Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Jhansi​

Cornea transplantation is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged cornea with a healthy one. It is also called keratoplasty. The cornea is the clear, round dome-shaped surface at the front of the eye. It bends (refracts) light that comes into the eye, which helps you see clearly. A transplant is needed when your cornea becomes cloudy or misshapen from disease or injury and it can no longer effectively focus light.

Cornea transplants are among the most successful of all organ transplants. More than 55,000 cornea transplants are performed in the United States each year. The success rate for vision improvement after cornea transplant surgery is more than 90%.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are many types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. 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 the most common types of corneal transplant surgeries. PK is a procedure in which the surgeon makes a small hole in the front of your eye and then uses a special instrument to remove the damaged cells from your cornea. DSEK/ DSAEK is a more advanced version of PK that removes more damaged cells and can improve your vision even further. DMEK is a similar procedure to DSEK/ DSAEK but it also replaces the damaged Descemet’s membrane with an artificial one. DALK is a procedure that replaces only part of your cornea, while SALK completely replaces your cornea. All four of these procedures are considered refractive surgery, which means they help you see better by correcting your vision errors.
