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.
