Corneal transplants are one of the oldest and most commonly performed transplant procedures in Australia. They are recommended in cases where the cornea, or the clear outer surface of the eye, becomes severely compromised by disease or damage. During a corneal transplant, the unhealthy or diseased tissue is removed and replaced with healthy tissue taken from a donor.
The decision to have a corneal transplant requires careful consideration and the guidance of an experienced eye doctor, like those at The Eye Health Centre.
