Corneal Transplant Eye Surgery

When a normally clear cornea becomes cloudy, it blocks light from reaching the retina. If this happens to you, you and your ophthalmologist may decide that a corneal transplant is needed to improve your vision. A corneal transplant is a surgery in which a diseased cornea is replaced with a clear, healthy, donor cornea. Donor corneas come from people who have agreed to donate their eye tissue after they die to help others regain their sight.

After a donor dies, the corneas are removed and taken to an eye bank, where they are examined to make sure that they are healthy. The cornea is a unique tissue, because unlike other transplanted organs it does not have to be matched to the patient receiving the transplant. The eye bank keeps the donor corneas until they are needed for corneal transplant surgery.

Corneal transplantation is an outpatient surgery performed in the operating room. Most patients are given intravenous sedation and numbing medicine is placed around the eye so that the operation is painless. The diseased cornea is removed using an instrument called a trephine that resembles a cookie cutter. A healthy donor cornea is cut to fit, and then sewn onto place using microscopic sutures. This procedure usually takes 60-90 minutes, followed by a short recovery period...
