Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Navi Mumbai​

A cornea transplant, also called keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy one. The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped outer surface of the eye. It protects the eye and helps focus light so you can see clearly. A transplant is usually done when other treatments, such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, or medications, can’t help improve vision. 

Cornea transplant surgery generally takes about two hours. During the surgery, the surgeon removes your damaged cornea and replaces it with a healthy donor cornea. The donor tissue is usually obtained from an eye bank. In some cases, a relative or friend may be able to donate their tissue for transplantation. 

If you’re considering a cornea transplant, talk with your doctor in Navi Mumbai about what you can expect before and after surgery.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are a variety of types of corneal transplant surgeries that can be performed to restore vision. 

  • The most common type is penetrating keratoplasty (PK), which involves removing part of the donor’s eye and inserting the new, corrected eye into the patient’s socket. 
  • Another common type is Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK), which removes a layer of the donor’s outermost layer of skin and then sews it over the corrected eye. 
  • The third type is Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK), which replaces a small piece of membrane from inside the donor eye with graft material. 
  • The fourth type is the Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK), which removes a large section of donor tissue from near the front of the eye and replaces it with new, corrective tissue. 
  • The fifth type is Superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty (SALK), which corrects only a small area near the front of the eye with new, corrective tissue. 
  • Finally, artificial eyes, known as keratoprostheses, can be implanted into either dry or wet conditions to provide permanent vision.
