Cornea Transplant Treatment & Surgery in Delhi

Dr. Chaudhary inspecting cornea of a woman

The cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped tissue covering the front of the eye. Replacing the damaged or opaque cornea with a clear, healthy cornea from a donor is referred to as corneal transplant, corneal graft or Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK).

A graft replaces central corneal tissue, damaged due to a disease or an injury, with a healthy one. The eye donated to a local eye bank is used to graft the tissue.

An unhealthy cornea affects your vision by scattering or distorting light and causing blurry or glary vision. A cornea transplant may be necessary to restore your functional vision. Cornea transplants are performed routinely in our hospital. In fact, of all the tissue transplants, the most successful is a corneal transplant.

Are You a Cornea Transplant Candidate?

Corneal transplant is done in various conditions:

  • Hereditary factors or corneal failure from previous surgeries
  • Thinning of the cornea or irregular shape (such as with keratoconus)
  • Chemical burns on the cornea or damage from an eye injury
  • Excessive swelling (edema) on the cornea

Corneal transplants are performed to protect the eye’s inner structures, relieve pain, and improve vision.
