Cornea Transplant / Keratoplasty In Vasai-Virar​

Cornea transplantation, also known as keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a diseased or damaged cornea with a healthy one from a donor. The cornea is the clear outer layer of the eye and plays an important role in focusing light. A transplant is usually needed when damage to the cornea is so severe that it cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, or other medical treatments.

If you live in Vasai-Virar and are considering a cornea transplant, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands. The surgeons at our hospital have performed many successful transplants and are experienced in dealing with any potential complications. We will work closely with you to ensure that you receive the best possible care and achieve the best possible outcome.

Types of Corneal Transplant Surgeries

There are four types of corneal transplant surgeries: Penetrating keratoplasty (PK), Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK/ DSAEK), Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), and Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK).

PK is the most common type of corneal transplant, and it involves using a blade to make a hole in the front of the eye. DSEK and DSAEK both involve using a special device to remove the surface layer of the eye’s cornea. DMEK is a more recent type of surgery that uses a smaller device to remove just the middle layer of the cornea. SALK is a less common type of surgery that uses a small telescope to make small holes in the front of the eye. Finally, artificial cornea transplants (keratoprosthesis) are used in some cases where either PK or SALK aren’t possible or desirable.
