Artificial Cornea Transplantation

Artificial Cornea Transplantation: Boston KPro

An artificial cornea transplant is the replacement of a diseased or scarred cornea with a donor cornea. Made of clear plastic with tissue tolerance and optical properties, the Boston keratoprosthesis (Boston KPro) is an artificial cornea.

Boston KPro is a new and improved method for treating blinding cornea disease. Even the most complex corneal diseases can now be successfully treated with the Boston KPro.

Benefits of Boston Keratoprosthesis (Boston KPro)

Best artificial cornea implant in the world: The Boston KPro can effectively restore vision in patients with severe blinding corneal diseases, including patients with high-risk corneal grafts and where previous corneal transplants and treatment have failed.

In severe blinding corneal diseases, the Boston keratoprosthesis implantation may be the best option for restoring long-term vision in these patients.
