Cornea Transplant

Your cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped surface of your eye that allows your eye to focus.

A cornea transplant can restore vision, reduce pain and improve the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea. A cornea transplant, also called keratoplasty, is typically performed as an outpatient procedure..

A number of conditions can be treated with a cornea transplant, including:

  • A cornea that bulges outward
  • Thinning of the cornea
  • Cornea scarring, caused by infection or injury
  • Clouding of the cornea
  • Swelling of the cornea
  • Corneal ulcers, including those caused by infection
  • Complications caused by previous eye surgery
