When I was 13-years-old, I had two eye cornea transplants. Now that I'm older, are there other treatment options for my eyes?

Depends: if the second corneal transplant was successful and is clear, allowing good vision, then nothing need be done . If the graft is rejecting, the eye will lose clarity and become red and irritated. The most likely treatment option at this stage would be the need for topical eyedrops administered by a corneal specialist to treat graft rejection. ...Read more

A : A corneal transplant is a procedure that should be performed only when indicated. A corneal transplant would be indicated when the procedure can be presumed to provide a significant benefit, the risks exceed the benefits, and other less risky measures to improve vision have failed. In your case, a transplant may have a significant benefit. But all procedures include risks and benefits. Risks of a corneal transplant include vision loss, graft failure, graft rejection, among others. Additionally, a corneal transplant requires extensive post-op care and follow-up. The decision to proceed with a corneal transplant requires careful deliberation after a discussion with your eye doctor. ...Read more
