A corneal transplant by our Good Hope eye surgeon is a surgical procedure during which a damaged or diseased cornea is replaced using healthy donated corneal tissue. The cornea is the clear part of the eye that covers the iris and pupil. The cornea consists of several layers which work together to maintain transparency to ensure proper transmission of light. There are diseases or disorders that can cause the cornea to lose its transparency. This results in subsequent vision loss. A cornea can also be damaged by injury or by infection. The type of surgery that is suggested by our eye doctor will depend on the exact nature of your individual problem. There are different procedures used if the back layer of the cornea has been affected or if the front layer of the cornea has been affected. If the entire cornea era has been damaged there is yet another procedure available. Whatever treatment you need, you can be sure that at our practice you will be treated by an eye surgeon who is a highly-respected expert in the field.
