    Eye stitches after cornea transplant... Wait... WHAT ?!

    In a corneal transplant, the eye is held open with a speculum (A). A laser is used to make an initial cut in the existing cornea (B). The surgeon uses scissors to remove it (C), and a donor cornea is placed (D). It is stitched with very fine sutures (E). (Illustration by GGS Inc.) It is the most common type of human transplant surgery and has the highest success rate. Eye banks acquire and store eyes from donors to supply the need for transplant corneas.

    Keratoprosthesis is a surgical procedure where a severely damaged or diseased cornea is replaced with an artificial cornea. While conventional cornea transplant uses donor tissue for transplant, an artificial cornea is used in the Keratoprosthesis procedure. The surgery is performed to restore vision in patients suffering from severely damaged cornea due to congenital birth defects, infections, injuries and burns.

    Replacing a Cornea

    Only the central portion of the cornea is involved in transplantation .The surgeon excises an appropriate circular disc of the patient's cornea and replaces it with a similarly sized disc of donor cornea, which is then sutured into place.
