Corneal transplantation for the treatment of keratoconus

Corneal transplantation is an option for treating keratoconus, a condition in which the cornea thins and bulges outward. This procedure involves replacing the damaged corneal tissue with healthy one donated by a donor. Resulting in improved vision and a better quality of life. 
During the surgery, the eye surgeon will make incisions in the eye and remove the diseased cornea. The donor cornea is then sutured into place and will eventually become integrated with the patient’s own tissue.
The process is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and most patients experience positive results after the procedure.
