The human eye has transparent cornea that plays a significant role in how light is bent and directed into your eyes. Patients who have damaged or diseased cornea might lose their eyesight. However, a donor can donate a cornea, which is then transplanted into the eye of the patient. Patients who are experiencing blindness as a result of a damaged or destroyed cornea can have their vision restored and will also stop pain that is caused by cornea swelling, scaring, infection, ulcers and complications that result from a failed eye surgery.
Cornea transplants are a delicate procedure and patients will want the most qualified medical professional possible to perform the cornea transplant. Many patients believe that the ideal surgeon is in another country and will participate in medical tourism abroad.
