Is eye transplant possible for blindness due to head trauma or eye injury?

Unfortunately no. Although we are making strides in tissue transplant techniques and stem cell therapy, we have not advanced to the point of whole eye transplant. The optic nerve, would need to connect its 1.5 million axons (the "wires" of the nerves) with the brain in a way that cannot currently be done. The cornea (front window) can be transplanted in cases of severe scarring from trauma.
Not quite yet... We're getting better but if the brain's visual centers are damaged or the optic nerve is destroyed there currently is no method for repair. If the injury is limited to the retina only - the possibility of a retinal implant theoretically exists. We've still got a long wait for this capability.
Not yet...but soon. An entire eye transplant is still in the relm of science fiction but researchers at several centers including stanford university and jules stein eye center are working on an artificial retina that can be implanted inside the eye and transmits information to the brain. In addition, stem cell transplants are showing promise and have been performed on patients with retinal diseases and injuries.

Can you tell me how can occupational therapists help people with eye injuries/blindness?

Training. Occupational therapists are trained to teach skills in the job market for people with physical infirmities and functional problems. Those who have lost vision can still find many employment opportunities but may not be aware of the availability of jobs and certainly would need training to be eligible for those jobs. Read more...

Assuming . Assuming the retina (back of the eye) is healthy and that the scar is significantly limiting your vision--i would go for the transplant. I would not do it just to get rid of the scar--only would do it to improve your vision. Read more...
Whether . Whether or not to have surgery is entirely your decision. You must determine with your surgeon, what your current level of vision is and how much your decreased vision is affecting your ability to live your life. You surgeon should be able to give you a run down on what potential your eye has of seeing better. A cornea transplant is a major surgery that requires many post-op visits and does carry with it some risk. So, you must weigh the benefits and the risks of going through this elective procedure.

It . It depends... It depends on the vision you have in that eye. You may not have 20/20 vision but if it is better than 20/60, you should not consider the surgery. However, if it 20/80 or worse then you should have the surgery. If your vision is between 20/60 to 20/80 then you can go either way. It depends on the experience of the surgeon and the confidence he/she has on getting you a better vision with the transplant. Read more...
