Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Panipat​

A cornea transplant, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy donor cornea. The surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist, a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders.

Cornea transplants are typically successful in restoring vision. However, it may take several months or even years for vision to fully recover. Additionally, there is a risk of rejection, whereby the body rejects the donor tissue. To reduce this risk, patients usually take immunosuppressive medication following surgery.

If you are considering a cornea transplant, be sure to consult with an experienced ophthalmologist in Panipat to discuss your specific situation and whether or not this surgery is right for you

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are a variety of different types of corneal transplant surgeries that can be performed. 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 a procedure in which the ENT surgeon removes the damaged portion of the cornea and replaces it with an artificial layer of tissue. 

DSEK is a similar procedure, but it uses a special instrument to remove the entire damaged layer of cornea. DMEK is a type of surgery that combines PK and DSEK. It allows for more accurate removal of the damaged layer of cornea and also helps to improve vision. 

Dalk is a type of KPE that uses screws to hold the artificial cornea in place during healing. SALK is similar to Dalk, but it uses a suction device to hold the artificial cornea in place while it heals. 

Artificial eye implants are becoming increasingly popular as a replacement for lost or destroyed eyesight due to disease or injury. These implants come in many different forms, including Keratoprosthesis, which is a type of KPE implant that uses
