A standard corneal transplant replaces a damaged cornea with a healthy cornea from a donor. This is the most common type of transplant surgery. Corneal transplants usually occur on an outpatient basis, meaning the patient can go home following surgery. Corneal transplants may be performed for any of the following reasons:
The cornea has five layers and all are removed and replaced with a donor cornea.
You are likely to need glasses or contact lenses to enhance your vision after surgery. Also, eye drops are used frequently after surgery and then reduced within an appropriate time frame.
