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.
