What is Cornea

The cornea is a clear protective outer layer of the eye that transmits and focuses light into the eye, which is crucial to clear vision. Infection, disease, injury, or scarring of this tissue can distort or block light as it passes through the cornea and enters the eye.

 

Corneal Transplant

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.
