Cornea Clinic at Yash Eye Hospital & Laser Center.
Cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped tissue covering the front of the eye. It is like the watch glass of a wrist watch. Cornea is a powerful refracting surface and provides about 2/3rd of the eye’s focusing power. Corneal disease can happen due to injury or infection which leads to the loss of its transparency, thus reducing the vision.
Corneal Transplant or Keratoplasty
Diseased corneas can now be replaced successfully by transplanting a human donor cornea to the diseased eye. Replacing the unhealthy cornea with a healthy cornea is the only way of restoring the vision. CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION is one of the most successful organ transplant surgeries.
Corneas for transplant come from individuals who have donated their eyes for use after death.
