can you tell me how to feel about cornea transplant for keratoconus eye disorder?

Check if needed: Not sure what you mean. The results of corneal transplant for keratoconus are excellent with very little rejection reported. If your disease is very advanced, and visual correction is limited by glasses, usually contact lenses, then a transplant can restore the best vision. Today, there are methods to transplant less tissue with excellent results. Feel good about the procedure if you need it.
