Prognosis

The corneal transplant is not only the oldest transplant performed, but also the most common transplant performed. The prognosis for a clear, functioning corneal transplant varies by diagnosis. The chance of long-term transplant success is higher than 94%, according to the Eye Bank Association of America. The generally high rate of success of corneal transplantation is attributable to many factors, including the effectiveness of the immunosuppressive drugs used to treat graft rejection. If you have any concerns, contact your Ophthalmologist. Your doctor will be able to inform you of the risks and rewards of the corneal transplant.
