Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Rampur​

There is a growing demand for corneal transplants in India, as the country faces an aging population and a shortage of healthy donor eyes. The availability of qualified surgeons and ample medical resources make transplantation procedures relatively painless and successful.

A cornea transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces the damaged or diseased cornea with an artificial substitute. A healthy donor eye is removed and the patient’s own healthy cornea is cut into small pieces and placed into their eye as a temporary solution. Once the patient is stable and there are no complications, the artificial cornea is replaced by the donated piece of tissue. 

Corneal transplants are one of the most common surgeries performed in India, as they offer a much-needed solution to blindness caused by disease or injury. There are several hospitals in Rampur that offer qualified surgeons who can perform this surgery with relative ease, making it an ideal option for those living in this region.
