How do I get ready for my cornea transplant?
You may need to make some special preparations before your cornea transplant, including discontinuing medications like blood thinners temporarily. Additionally, you may need to treat other eye conditions (such as dry eye) before undergoing surgery. For optimal results, you need to have the best eye health possible going into your cornea transplant.
What is the recovery time after a cornea transplant?
Your recovery time will depend on how fast your body heals and which form of cornea transplant surgery you undergo. Most patients return to their regular routines within one to two weeks, though full vision clarity often requires further healing time. Your surgeon will advise you with all the needed post-operative care and recovery before undergoing a cornea transplant.
