In brief: Cookie cutter
This is a replacement of a diseased or damaged cornea with a donor cornea.
The technique is the use of a cookie cutter type device to remove the old cornea, cutting a similar one from the donor eye, and sewing it in place. Needs a lot of medication and close follow-up for a while but vision saving in the right patient.
