Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Kalyan-Dombivli​

Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty in Kalyan-Dombivli is a medical procedure wherein the damaged cornea is replaced with a healthy one. This surgery is also known as an optical transplant or ocular implant. It is performed to improve the vision of a person who has been affected by a corneal disease, injury, or any other reason. The transplanted tissue helps to restore the normal shape and function of the eye.

It usually takes place under local anesthesia. This means that you will be awake during the surgery but your eyes will be numbed so that you do not feel any pain. The surgeon will make an incision in your eye and then remove the damaged cornea. The healthy donor cornea will then be placed over your eye and sutured into place. The surgery usually takes about two hours to complete and you will need to stay in the hospital overnight for observation.

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 transplants. 

PK is a surgery where the surgeon removes a small piece of the donor eye’s epithelium and replaces it in the damaged area of the patient’s eye. DSEK/ DSAEK is a surgery where the surgeon removes a large piece of the donor eye’s epithelium and replaces it in the damaged area of the patient’s eye. DMEK is a surgery where the surgeon removes part of both the donor and patient eyes’ epithelium, then stitches them together. DALK is a surgery where part of the donor eye’s epithelium is removed and inserted into the damaged area of the patient’s eye, then stitches it in place. SALK is a very rare type of corneal transplant surgery that uses an artificial intraocular lens to replace part or all of a patient’s lost cornea.
