Corneal Treatment In Rohini​

Cornea is the clear, curved outer layer that covers your eye. It helps to focus light on the retina, which is the sensitive tissue at the back of your eye that converts light into electrical signals sent to your brain. If you have a cornea problem, it can affect your vision. At Eyemantra in Rohini, we offer a variety of treatments for cornea problems, including:

  • Corneal transplantation: This is a surgical procedure to replace your damaged cornea with a healthy one from a donor.
  • Corneal cross-linking: This is a treatment to strengthen the collagen fibers in your cornea. It is used to treat corneal problems such as keratoconus.
  • Corneal inlays and onlays: These are small, thin pieces of plastic that are placed in your cornea to improve vision. They are used to treat presbyopia, which is a condition that causes difficulty reading up close.
  • Intacs: These are small, crescent-shaped pieces of plastic that are placed in your cornea to improve vision. They are used to treat keratoconus.
  • Collagen cross-linking: This is a treatment to strengthen the collagen fibers in your cornea. It is used to treat corneal problems such as keratoconus.

Common Corneal Conditions

Corneal Treatment Surgery Procedure

Before cornea transplant surgery

  • The first thing will be a  thorough eye exam. Your eye doctor looks for conditions that may lead to complications post-surgery.
  • Afterward, the doctor will take the measurements of your eye. Your eye doctor decides what size donor cornea you require.
  • A review of all medications and supplements you’re taking will be done. You might need to stop taking certain medications or supplements pre or post your cornea transplant.

During the procedure

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be given a sedative to help you relax and a local anesthetic to numb your eye. You will not be asleep during the surgery but you should not feel any pain.

During the most frequent type of cornea transplant surgery (penetrating keratoplasty), a cut is made through the entire thickness of the cornea to remove a small disk of corneal tissue. An instrument called a trephine is used to make this small circular cut.

The donor cornea tissue is then placed in the opening. Your surgeon then uses a thin thread to stitch the new cornea into place.

After the procedure

Post your transplant, you can expect to:

  • Receive several medications, eyedrops, and, sometimes, oral medications immediately after cornea transplant and during recovery. This will help control infection, swelling, and pain.
  • Wear an eye patch. An eye patch might protect your eye as it heals post-surgery.
  • Return for frequent follow-up exams. Go for regular eye exams in which your doctor looks for complications in the first year after surgery.

“Cornea treatment at Eyemantra is simply the best! I had been suffering from corneal ulcer for quite some time and was recommended by my ophthalmologist to go for a cornea transplant. But, I was not keen on undergoing such a big surgery. That’s when I heard about the amazing treatment options available at Eyemantra. I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did! The treatment was completely painless and my ulcer was healed within a few weeks. I am now able to see clearly again and I am extremely thankful to the team at Eyemantra for their help.”

Frequently Asked Question’s

Generally, a corneal surgery takes an hour to get over but a person has to stay in the operating room for 2 hours for a postoperative examination.

90%. The overall completion rate of a corneal transplant is very noble using modern eye banking and surgical procedures. But, there are multiple determinants that determine the result. 

For example, keratoconus has one of the largest prognoses for great vision with a greater than 90% chance of a clear graft.

A corneal transplant is performed as an outpatient method. Eye drops will be put in the patient’s eyes. The patient eye surgeon will practice either local or general anesthesia. So, the patient will not feel pain.

The specific conditions that can affect the clarity of one’s cornea are :

  • Hereditary situations such as Fuchs’ dystrophy.
  • Chemical burns of the cornea or injury to an eye.
  • Extreme swelling on the edema of the cornea.
  • Uncommon complications from LASIK surgery.

With its strength for fast repair, the cornea regularly heals after maximum injury or disease. Still, when there is widespread damage to the cornea, the healing procedure may be increased.

Primarily, do not rub your eyes. Avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting during the first weeks after surgery. If you have a job that does not involve physical strain on your eyes and other parts of the body, you can return to work 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.
