Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Moradabad​

A cornea transplant, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy one. The healthy cornea is usually donated by a family member or friend of the patient. Cornea transplants are usually performed to improve vision. However, they can also be done to relieve pain or other symptoms caused by a diseased or damaged cornea. 

The success rate of cornea transplants is very high, and most patients who have the procedure experience an improvement in their vision. However, it is important to note that a transplant does not guarantee perfect vision. In some cases, additional surgery may be needed after a transplant to improve vision further. 

If you are considering a cornea transplant in Moradabad, it is important to consult with an experienced eye surgeon who can evaluate your individual case and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are many types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The three most common operations are PK, DSEK, and DALK. 

PK is a type of penetrating keratoplasty in which the surgeon makes a small hole in the front of your eye and inserts a blade into the cornea to cut it open. This operation is usually done to replace an injured or damaged cornea. DSEK is a type of Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty in which the surgeon removes part of the endothelium (the thin layer of cells that lines the inside of your eyes) and then stitches it back on top of the existing cornea. This operation is used to treat conditions like wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which causes gradual loss of vision in one or both eyes. DMEK is a type of Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty in which the surgeon removes part of the membrane that covers your eyeball and then stitches it back on top of the cornea. This operation is used to treat conditions like keratoconus, a condition that results in steepening or even bulging of your cornea.
