The cornea is the central clear transparent window of the eye. The cornea may become diseased or hazy due to a wide variety of eye conditions.
These diseases include infections and injuries which result in corneal scarring, or swelling and cloudiness of the cornea due to damage or ageing of the innermost layer of cells of the cornea (the corneal endothelial layer).
This eventually leads to progressive haziness of the cornea and loss of vision.
Cornea Disease Treatment: Cornea Transplantation
A corneal transplant involves replacing a diseased or scarred cornea with a donor cornea so that vision can be restored.
This is a highly specialised procedure which is performed by a cornea specialist. Our renowned Senior Ophthalmologist Dr. Leonard Ang specialises in cornea transplantation and has a proven track record of cornea disease treatments.
