A 40-year-old member asked:

After a corneal transplant will my pupil become clear?

Usually: The goal of this surgery is to provide a clear view from a formerly obscured vision due to corneal disease. Mostly that goal is reached and your central visual axis, your pupil, will clear up. You need to be very diligent in post operative care to achieve this goal.

Yes: Yes. If your current cornea is cloudy, the new transplant should allow you to see your pupil much clearer.
