Every little piece of the body is a working miracle. Have you ever thought about how amazing it is that each of your fingers moves? Or that your brain can control everything? Or that your eyes can receive and process images so quickly? Perhaps another miracle is that of modern medicine. Today, there are so many different treatments for when our body malfunctions and is not so miraculous. Among these blessings in the medical world is the cornea transplant surgery, which provides a ray of hope to all of those (perhaps you included!) who have partially or fully lost their eyesight due to cornea damage.

Cornea & Cataract Consultants of Arizona is your place to go for these delicate treatments. Here’s what you need to know.

What Happens During a Cornea Transplant?

A cornea transplant treats the outer portion of the eye through surgery. Also called corneal grafting, the transplant is usually done when the cornea has been ripped or otherwise damaged. You will require a healthy cornea from a donor, which is usually obtained through an eye bank. Although the whole cornea is often replaced, there are times when it will only be a partial replacement.

Cornea transplants are very beneficial and will give you the following effects:

  • Improvement in your vision.
  • Decrease in any eye inflammation.
  • Decrease in the pain caused by the malfunctioning eye.

Here at Cornea & Cataract Consultants of Arizona, we do our best to make sure that the surgery is beneficial to you and worth your time and money. It is only performed after extensive consultation with our board of doctors and medical specialists. They will put you at ease and answer any questions you might have.

The recovery period varies from patient to patient, depending on their prior health. However, here at our center, we ensure that each patient is carefully monitored after surgery, to both record and aid the entire recovery process. Before, during, and after surgery, we meet high, world-class standards.

Make your world (and vision) brighter today through an appointment with the Cornea & Cataract Consultants of America!
