CORNEAL TRANSPLANT IN SEATTLE

A corneal transplant is the replacement of damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy cornea in order to restore vision. Corneal transplants are usually needed when the cornea is scarred or swollen beyond the repair of other treatments.

ABOUT CORNEAL TRANSPLANT SURGERY

The cornea was one of the first parts of the body to be transplanted and corneal transplants remain one of the most common and most successful of all transplant procedures. During the procedure, part of a cloudy or warped cornea is replaced with a graft from a healthy cornea, which comes from an eye bank. Since a cornea heals slowly, full healing and vision improvement may take a year or more.

We now perform the suture-less corneal transplant. In this procedure, we only replace the diseased inner lining of the cornea. This allows much more rapid recovery of vision while also providing a more stable cornea post-operatively.

When your vision and eye health matter, discover great care from a board-certified ophthalmologist at CLEARVIEW Eye & Laser. Call 206.431.9600 in Burien or 206.937.9600 in Seattle. We also welcome patients from Kent, Renton, Vashon Island and surrounding areas.
