Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Khammam​

There is a great need for cornea transplantation and keratoplasty in Khammam. The reason for this is that the number of patients with degenerative eye diseases is on the rise, which means that more and more people are requiring corneal transplantation or keratoplasty. This can be done using either a primary (from a deceased person) or a secondary (from another person) donor. 

A primary cornea transplant involves removing an entire cornea from a dead donor and replacing it in the patient. A secondary cornea transplant is done when the patient has lost their whole right or left eye due to an injury or disease, and the only available tissue is along the edge of their eyeball. In either case, the surgery is highly complex and requires very specialized expertise. 

If you are considering undergoing a corneal transplant or keratoplasty in Khammam, then you should contact one of our specialists at Mantracare for more information about what treatment options are available to you. We will work with you to determine which would be the best option for your specific circumstances.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are a variety of types of corneal transplant surgeries that can restore vision in people who have lost their sight. These include 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), and Artificial Cornea Transplant (Keratoprosthesis).

PK is the most common type of corneal transplant surgery, and it is typically used to restore vision in people who have lost their eye due to disease or injury. In PK, the surgeon removes part of the cornea, or the front layer of the eye, and then replaces it with an artificial lens.

 DSEK and DSAEK are similar procedures, but they use a different method to remove the damaged area of the cornea. DMEK is a newer type of surgery that uses lasers to remove the damaged area of the cornea. DALK is a procedure that uses a blade to slice away part of the damaged area of the cornea. SALK is a less-common type of surgery that uses microscopic scissors to cut away damaged area from within the cornea. Finally, a Keratoprosthesis is an artificial cornea that can be used to replace the entire cornea.
