What is Cornea?

The cornea has a vital role in adjusting or setting the focus of your vision. The cornea is a watch glass shaped and transparent organ present at the front section of the eyeball. The cornea is used to shield the eye against germs, harmful particles, and dirt. The cornea occupies two-third of refractive power. Since the cornea has no blood vessels and hence, it cannot be saved from infections.

There are various problems that may be detected in the cornea during the regular and routine checkups by the doctor. Some diseases are detected at the early stage and some at a later stage.

Most Common Corneal Problems are:

  • Ectasias
  • Chemical Injuries
  • Corneal Dystrophies
  • Trauma
  • Congenital Anomalies
  • Microbial Infections
  • Corneal abrasion
  • Infectious keratitis (cornea ulcer)
  • Corneal degeneration
  • Corneal dystrophy
  • Corneal opacity

Are there any Risks with the Procedure?

Some of the risks involved with the surgery are:

  • Infection, present in the cornea or inside the eye
  • Bleeding
  • Glaucoma (which is increased pressure inside your eye)
  • Fluid leakage from your cornea
  • Detached retina (pulling of the eye tissue lining away from the eye)
  • Visual acuity problems (sharpness of the vision) because of an irregular curve in the shape of the cornea
  • The detachment of the corneal transplant
