Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Siliguri​

A cornea transplant, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a diseased or damaged cornea with a healthy one. The cornea is the clear outer layer of the eye and plays a vital role in focused vision. A transplant is usually necessary when the damage to the cornea is too severe for glasses or contact lenses to correct. Cornea transplants are performed under local anesthesia as day surgery and usually take between one and two hours. 

If you’re considering having a cornea transplant, it’s important to consult an experienced eye surgeon who can assess whether you’re suitable for the procedure. Siliguri offers some of the best facilities for this kind of surgery in India, so if you’re looking for top-quality treatment, this is definitely the place to come.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are many types of corneal transplant surgery, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. Penetrating keratoplasty (PK) is the most common type of corneal transplant, performed to replace a damaged or defective cornea. Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK) is a less common procedure that removes the superficial layer of the eye’s surface skin and replaces it with healthy donor tissue. Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is a more rare procedure that replaces the weakened or damaged layer of cells that cover the inside surface of the eye’s lens. Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), also known as superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty (SALK), is a newer technique that uses a robot to remove the entire inferior layer of the eye’s surface skin and replace it with healthy donor tissue. Artificial Cornea Transplant (Keratoprosthesis) is an alternative to traditional corneal transplant surgery that uses an artificial replacement for the cornea.
