Cornea Transplant It is a surgery known as ocular transplantation, in which the most pre-transparent layer, which is actually only seen as a result of various diseases, is replaced by healthy corneal tissue taken from a dying person. A coronal segment of 6-9 mm in diameter is removed from the healthy cornea donated during corneal transplantation and a piece of the same size is removed from the cornea of ​​the recipient (patient) and stitched there. Surgery is preferred under general anesthesia but can also be done with local anesthesia in the elderly. The duration of the operation is 15-20 minutes. It may take 1-2 hours if it is done with special operations such as cataract surgery or intraocular lens replacement. Recent technological developments have made this surgery the most successful organ transplant surgery. While the history of corneal transplantation, which goes back to the end of the 19th century, is more than 40,000 per year in the USA, this number is about 1,500 per year in our country. The difficulties in corneal coverage in Turkey cause thousands of people to wait for surgery. Cornea banks and the Ministry's new regulation on transplants will solve this problem.
