Corneal Transplant

The cornea is the clear front of the eye that covers the colored iris and the round pupil. Light is focused while passing through the cornea so we can see. If the cornea is damaged, it may become swollen or scarred, causing the cornea to scatter or distort light, resulting in glare or blurred vision. Ophthalmologists perform more than 40,000 corneal transplants each year in the United States. In corneal transplant surgery, the damaged cornea is removed and a clear donor cornea is sewn into place.
