Corneal Transplant Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

A corneal transplant can correct vision problems caused by infections, injuries, or medical conditions. It is often recommended for the following:

  • Keratoconus—a thinning of the cornea that causes blurred vision
  • A cornea scarred from infection or injury
  • Clouding of the cornea

Most people who undergo a corneal transplant enjoy improved vision for many years, or even a lifetime. It can take up to a year for vision to stabilize after surgery. Most people still need to wear glasses or contacts.
