The cornea is the crystal clear window in the front of the eye.
If a cornea is no longer able to adequately accomplish one or more its functions (transparency, focused imaging, stability), the only available help is the tranplantation of a clear human cornea. A corneal transplantation can be performed full thickness or partial thickness (lamellar).
The most recent progress is removal of the diseased tissue and of the transplant with a laser (the so-called femtosecond laser). At Acibadem Eye Clinics, this method is routinely used in appropriate cases.
