Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Nashik​

Cornea transplantation, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged cornea with a healthy donor cornea. The surgery is performed to improve vision in people who have corneal disease or injury. Corneal disease can be caused by many things, including infections, injuries, and degenerative conditions. 

When the cornea becomes damaged, it can no longer function properly and light cannot pass through it correctly. This leads to blurred vision and eventually blindness. Cornea transplantation is usually the last resort after other treatments, such as medications and surgery, have failed. The surgery is complex and requires a high level of skill from the surgeon. It is also a very delicate surgery, as the new cornea must be carefully placed into the eye without damaging any other structures. The recovery process after a cornea transplant can be long and difficult. It often takes several months for vision to improve and for the eye to heal completely.

If you are considering this surgery, be sure to consult with an experienced ophthalmologist in Nashik to discuss all your options.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are several types of corneal transplant surgeries, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. 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) are all types of artificial cornea transplants. 

PK is the most common type of artificial cornea transplant, and it is performed using a blade to remove a small amount of the donor eye’s surface tissue. This tissue is then replaced by the surgeon with an artificial cornea. DSEK/ DSAEK replaces the stroma layer and Descemet’s membrane with an artificial contact lens-like material. DMEK replaces the Descemet’s membrane only, while DALK replaces both the stroma and Descemet’s membrane. SALK is a less invasive type of artificial cornea transplant that uses a smaller incision than DMEK or DALK and does not require removal of any donor tissue. Finally, artificial cornea transplants using a prosthetic implant are often referred to as keratoprosthesis surgery.
