Corneal Transplants Technology
What is a Corneal Transplant?
The corneal transplant is a process used to prevent vision loss, in which damaged corneal tissue is removed and replaced with healthy donor corneal tissue. The cornea is the transparent outer covering of the eye. Light passes through the cornea to the retina, which allows you to see. Certain medical conditions, inherited disorders and eye injuries can cause scarring, clouding, thinning or fluid buildup in the cornea. When that happens, light is prevented from reaching the retina (Eye banks around the country store corneas retrieved from deceased organ donors, providing tissue for thousands of transplants each year.)
How is DSEK different from a traditional corneal transplant?
In the traditional procedure, the surgeon removes the entire damaged central portion of the patient’s cornea and replaces it with a donor cornea. This is called a full thickness penetrating corneal transplant. DSEK involves transplanting only one thin layer of corneal tissue, the endothelial layer. The remaining healthy layers of corneal tissues are kept intact.
