Corneal Transplant :

The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer and protects it from dirt, germs and other unwelcome particles that everyday life hurls at us.

Down arrow

Although it may seem rather inconsequential, it is in fact a highly organised tissue. Unlike most tissue in the body, the cornea contains no blood vessels to nourish or protect it against infection. Instead, the cornea receives its nourishment from tears and the aqueous humor (a fluid in the front part of the eye that lies behind the cornea). Small scratches or minor injuries it can handle.

However more serious injuries, some allergies, a few inherited conditions and a raft of diseases with increasingly bizarre names may make surgical intervention (corneal transplantation) necessary.

How the Corneal Transplant Procedure Works

In a corneal transplant procedure, also known as cornea grafting, the surgeon replaces the damaged part of the cornea with healthy donor corneal tissue to help restore vision and, in some circumstances, to treat corneal scarring.

The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthetic, however there is no need for an overnight stay and you’ll be able to go home an hour or so after the procedure.

A particularly specialised precision instrument is used to remove the diseased part of your cornea, and the donor cornea is prepared to the exact size, is then carefully sutured in place with fine stitches, or sometimes no sutures are required.

Following your procedure, an eye pad and protective shield will be placed over your eye. Once your anaesthetic has worn off you’ll be able to go home, and we’ll arrange a follow up appointment the next day.

Got any questions? We’re here to make things super clear. The corneal transplant procedure is a safe and effective procedure provided by our specialist surgeons at our Re:Vision clinic in Auckland. Contact our friendly team. They’re here to help.

How much does laser eye surgery cost?

:

You may think that LASIK or Vision Correction is expensive, and while it isn’t cheap, you might be surprised to learn how much money you save when compared to a lifetime of buying glasses or contacts. LASIK will prove a superior investment over the course of 20 years, and you will enjoy the added benefit of not requiring to wear glasses or put in contacts every day.

By the time I turn 60 I will have spent on contact lenses/glasses:

At Re:Vision, we offer laser vision correction starting from $3,100/eye.
