In brief: No

Eye transplants usually refer to corneal transplants.
Cornea is the clear part in front of the eye and if damaged can become opaque and replaced by corneal transplants.

In brief: Not yet

Full eyeball transplant not here yet.
Some interesting work on full and partial thickness retinal transplants have been pursued with minimal success. Electronic retinal prosthetic work promising but still in infancy. Optic nerve transplants unlikely for a long time.

In brief: No eye transplants

Unfortunately we do not have the technology to do successful eye or optic nerve transplants.
As of now the only transplant that we can do involving the eye is cornea transplants. We can also replace the lens in the eye but we do that with an artificial lens and not a human lens.

In brief: Cornea transplant

Unfortunately, we have limited treatment options for optic nerve damage and can not yet transplant a whole eye.
Optic nerve damage can occur for a large number of reasons, and that should be evaluated to make evaluated because some forms are progressive unless treated. We can transplant the various layers of the cornea, the front clear window of the eye.
