Our cornea specialists offer the most advanced techniques in corneal transplantation, which provide for a safer procedure and quicker recovery.

Procedures include:

  • Partial corneal transplants
  • Descemet's Stripping with Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK)

The cornea in your eye is the clear tissue that covers the eye and light entering your eye first passes through the cornea, then pupil and lens.

You may have a need for a cornea transplant if your cornea no longer lets light enter your eye properly because of scarring or disease.
