At our vision practice we offer the very highest level of eye care for patients suffering with many different types of vision problems. One of the conditions that we treat are corneas that for some reason need to be replaced with a corneal transplant. At our eye care practice, we are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to diagnose and treat your Roselle Park cornea problem. Our doctors specialize in advanced corneal transplantation. There are different types of corneal transplants that can be done, and our eye doctor will let you know which type of treatment should work best for you in your particular situation. Our doctors can either provide a conventional corneal transplant, also known as a penetrating keratoplasty, or a partial corneal transplant also referred to as DSEK. In more general terms, a corneal transplant is a surgical procedure that is performed when a damaged cornea is replaced by donated corneal tissue. A cornea may need to be replaced because it is damaged or diseased and will no longer let light enter your eye properly. A keratoplasty is simply a name for corneal surgery. During this eye surgery, our ophthalmologist will remove a portion of your cornea and replace it with a new donor section. Approximately 40,000 people in the United States have corneal surgery performed each year. Generally, patients need to have corneal surgery if: their cornea is damaged from either trauma or infection; the patient has keratoconus, a condition that causes your cornea to lose its shape; or the patient has other inherited conditions such as Fuchs’ disease.
