CORNEA

The cornea is the transparent tissue that covers the front of the eye (see diagram). An easy way to   locate the cornea is simply to look at your eye in   the mirror. You will notice a clear surface   covering the iris (the colored part   of the eye) and pupil. This is the cornea


Consult your doctor if :


 Loss of vision due to corneal opacification.
 Chemical burns of cornea.
 Refractive problems due to conical cornea (Keratoconus)
 Recurrent Pterygium.
 Corneal infections (Corneal ulcers) leading to complications
 Corneal decompensation following ocular surgery
 Contact Lens Related Problems


Remember

Facts About C3R: (Cornea Collagen Cross linking and ribo flow)


 Done in cases of keratoconus Conical Cornea
 It Strenghthens the Cornea
 Stop Progression of disease
 Dose not Correct the refractive error

Facts About Keratoplasty

 One of the most difficult eye surgery procedures.
 The integrity of all other intraocular structures is a key factor in the ultimate    outcome.
 The ophthalmologist makes every attempt to confirm the retinal and optic nerve    function prior to surgery.
   If a graft rejection occurs then most of the time it can be reversed by    early treatment with eye medications alone.
 Consult your Ophthalmologist immediately if you experience pain, increased    sensitivity to light, blurring of
 ision and redness during post-operative recovery period.
 Though no assurances of good vision can be made but with advancements in    procedure the success rates are high.
 Irregular refractive status of the eye is inherent to the corneal transplant surgery.
 The surgeon, from time-to-time, to improve the Vision selectively removes the    stitches.
 Post-operatively, patients should expect a gradual recovery of vision over 2 to 12    months.
 Spectacle corrections cannot be prescribed till the graft has healed enough to give    a stable vision.
 Remember that most rejections occur within the first two years. So the patients    should always be cautious during
   this period and report any adverse symptoms immediately. Beyond two years the    rejection rates are very low.



Eye donation & Eye Banks

 Donated corneas come from a recently deceased person wherein the deceased    and his   family have made a
   noble humanitarian gesture.
 It is merely not sufficient to fill in an eye donation form, rather it is not necessary    at all but   to impress upon
   ;the near relatives of their decision to do so which they alone have to facilitate    after    their   demise.
 For the eye donation to be of clinical use the eyeballs must be donated preferably    within   6 hours of death.
   The donation never goes waste and those eyes that cannot be transplanted are    submitted   for research.
 Please allow a blood sample also to be withdrawn, as it is necessary for screening    purposes. Remember that it is not necessary for life-threatening disorders to be    clinically   manifest in every individual. At times the infection remains dormant and    manifests in the   patient transplanted.
 Eye Banks are non-profit organizations that organize for the retrieval of eyeballs,    processing and their transportation. The identity of the donor is always kept a    secret. The   eye banks charge an amount to cover expenses from the patient to    be transplanted.
 The eye banks have the necessary infrastructure to screen and conduct tests on    the eyes   and assess their functional viability. It also maintains a registry of its    activities
