A Surgical Solution for Restoring Vision Impairment Caused by Corneal Damage
The cornea, the clear front surface of the eye, plays a crucial role in focusing light and enabling clear vision. When the cornea becomes damaged or diseased, it can significantly impair vision, leading to symptoms such as blurry vision, light sensitivity, and halos around lights. In such cases, a corneal transplant, also known as keratoplasty, can offer a life-changing solution, restoring vision and improving overall eye health.
Understanding Corneal Transplants
A corneal transplant is a surgical procedure that involves replacing the damaged or diseased cornea with healthy donor tissue. The donor cornea is typically obtained from an eye bank, where it is carefully preserved and matched to the recipient's eye for compatibility.
Types of Corneal Transplants
The type of corneal transplant performed depends on the extent of corneal damage. Common types include:
- Penetrating Keratoplasty: Replacing the entire thickness of the cornea
- Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK): Replacing the deeper layers of the cornea
- Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK): Replacing the front layers of the cornea
- Endothelial Keratoplasty (EK): Replacing only the inner layer of the cornea
