Another condition that might lead to needing a cornea transplant is called keratoconus, in which the cornea undergoes thinning, resulting in abnormally high degrees of astigmatism. Astigmatism simply means that the cornea is not perfectly round-instead one part of the cornea is steeper than the other. This results in blurred images and can even lead to a painful condition called corneal hydrops, in which you develop a blister on the front of the eye. The majority of patients with keratoconus do not need a transplant, and they usually can manage to see well with either glasses or contact lenses.
Finally, certain infections or injuries can result in significant scarring of the cornea, leading to blindness that can only be relieved with a cornea transplant. The cloudy cornea is basically exchanged for a clear donor cornea.
At the Orange County Eye Institute, we will guide you throughout the entire process and give you our expert advice as to whether you are a candidate for such a procedure.
