PKP Surgery

An improperly curved cornea may be corrected surgically for patients whose cornea curvature is too steep or flat to be treated with other methods, or when extensive damage has occurred due to disease, infection or surgery. Corneal transplantation, also known as keratoplasty, may be performed in patients that have the following conditions: Dry eyes, Blepharitis, Corneal ulceration, Corneal dystrophies, Pterygia, Traumatic injury.

Cornea transplant involves replacing the entire thickness of the cornea with a donor graft. The new cornea is sutured into place, and then stitches are usually removed after a year. It may take this long for vision to be restored to satisfactory levels as well requiring many patients to wear glasses or contact lenses after this procedure.
