No: There are different types of cornea transplants that are performed depending on the disease, but none of them should have significant pain.

Not very: Corneal transplantation can be uncomfortable at times but rarely interferes with sleep. It can be treated with pain medication if needed but that is most often not needed. This should not be an impediment to having this done if needed.
