Corneal Transplants

The cornea is the clear covering of the front of the eye which bends light rays that focus on the retina in the back of the eye. Whenever the shape or the clarity of the cornea is altered the patient experiences a loss of visual acuity. Although there are numerous diseases of the cornea, the two primary entities that cause visual disturbance are Keratoconus and Fuchs’ Dystrophy. Learn more about corneal transplants here.
