Corneal Transplant

A cornea transplant replaces diseased or scarred corneal tissue with healthy tissue from an organ donor.

There are two main types of cornea transplants: traditional, full thickness cornea transplant and selective layer cornea transplant. As a Fellowship-Trained Corneal Specialist, Dr. Chu has extensive experience in modern corneal transplantation techniques that selectively replaces just the diseased layers of the cornea for faster recovery and better results. He has performed thousands of these procedures helping many patients with conditions such as keratoconus, Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy, bullous keratopathy, or corneal scarring from infections.

  • Today, however, ophthalmologists have utilized DSAEK as an alternative to replacing the entire cornea.
