What is a Corneal Transplant?

The cornea is the transparent film on top of the eye, which helps bend light so you can see and focus on objects. If your cornea becomes damaged, scarred, or inflamed, you may start to experience blurry eyesight or vision glares. The cornea is an extraordinarily resilient eye structure that can often heal from minor injuries; however, sometimes the cornea has difficulty healing and repairing itself. When this happens, our West Palm Beach, FL ophthalmologist may recommend a corneal transplant. At Bentz Eye Center, our team removes viable cornea tissue from a human donor to replace the damaged cornea. Based on your condition, patients can have part of or the entire cornea replaced. Please schedule an appointment with Bentz Eye Center to learn more about corneal transplants with one of our board-certified ophthalmologists.

What to expect during a corneal transplant

Prior to your treatment, you and one of our expert ophthalmologists will discuss your overall health and medications to ensure you qualify for a corneal transplant. Once we determine that this treatment works best for you, our group can design a plan and schedule your procedure.

As an outpatient treatment at Bentz Eye Center, we start by administering eye drops to numb the eye and placing an eye speculum to prevent you from blinking. Our West Palm Beach, FL ophthalmologist tapes a patch over your eye, which encourages healing during the recovery period. Following your procedure, you'll receive detailed aftercare instructions, and we will ask you to come back into the office for post-surgery visits.
