In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
