Corneal Transplant Surgery Questions and Answers
i have a corneal transplant on my right eye as a result of a botched radial keritonomy, i had 20 cuts in each eye as the result of RK in 1993 i am having trouble with the fit of a gas permeable contact which rides nasal. my dr has suggested he could do lasik but it could result in the scars rupturing during surgery. he also said he could do prk instead of lasik. is this a successful surgery for my eye due to the transplant and is there any thing else to correct my vision. thank you audrey
Absolutely no PRK. It may be possible to due LASIK if there are no epithelial inclusions.
