Corneal Transplant (Keratoplasty) India | Cornea Services
Keratoplasty, being associated with the eyes, one of the oft-romanticised organs of the body, has its fair share of myths to contend with

Vision improves immediately after surgery
Vision does not improve overnight but takes some time ranging from a few weeks to a few months
It’s ok to discontinue eye-drops after surgery
No, there are good chances of cornea transplant rejection which can be reversed in 90% cases if noticed early
Keratoplasty surgeries don’t last long
This is a figment of somebody’s imagination. Conclusive research at American labs has evidenced that new cornea lasts for at least a decade in a whopping 89% people with keratoconus, 73% people with Fuch’s dystrophy and up to 70% people with corneal scarring
