Usually do well: The operation is often done as an outpatient or in a surgi-center. A general anesthetic is usually required. It will be hard to offer more information without knowing the cause of the corneal disease. If done for keratoconus they are more straightforward; if done for trauma, infections, scarring, they can be more challenging. Discuss this directly with your opthalmologic surgeon.
