Full or partial transplantation of the cornea can restore vision, reduce pain and improve the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea. Missouri Eye Institute’s ophthalmic surgeons utilize only the highest quality donor eye tissue to perform the most modern corneal transplant surgeries in the Springfield, Branson and Joplin region. Also known as keratoplasty, cornea transplantation is one of the most common–and statistically most successful–transplant surgeries conducted today. No other eye surgery has so much to offer when a cornea is irreparably diseased due to ulcers, abrasions, scarring or other injuries. Our surgeons perform all the most advanced reparative corneal transplant procedures. More information is available at the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s website: academy website.

What if I Need a Cornea Transplant?

If a cornea transplant has been recommended by an ophthalmologist due to disease or injury, you will be placed on a transplant list. The Eye Bank will notify our office when there is suitable donor tissue available, and then transplant surgery will be scheduled within a short period of time. The procedure is typically on an outpatient basis. When you are placed on the transplant list you must leave phone numbers with our office so that we can reach you at all times.
