Corneal Transplants

The cornea is the front window of the eye. In some diseased states this window becomes cloudy and can't be fixed medically. Here at the Western Pennsylvania Eye Institute we perform corneal transplants which often, with the help of a contact lens, can restore vision to close to 20/20 in eyes that were previously seeing extremely poorly. This surgery is done as an outpatient procedure with the patient going home the same day with minimum restrictions.

We can also discuss the pros and cons of other cutting-edge corneal procedures such as DSAEK, which can often decrease the healing time and can remove the need for a hard contact lens.
