Corneal Transplantation | IOA Madrid
My name is Antonio and in 1982 I had an infection in my right eye that caused a corneal ulcer and then an irrecoverable scar. The only solution was to perform a corneal transplantation, which on that occasion I decided not to do.
In 2009 I started treatment at IOA. After having a cataracts operation in both eyes on 30/03/2009, with a very satisfactory result, assessed by the by the centre regarding the type of implant currently used for these cases, in which one corneal layer is replaced and encouraged by the results and efficiency of the centre, I decided to undergo the operation.
I was operated on 20/06/2012. Given the simplicity of the operation, that is carried out with local anaesthetic, I did not require hospitalization. The post-surgery was simple and included an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory treatment. I only needed a temporary unfitness to work from the 20/06 to the 06/07/2012.
The stitches on the cornea were removed on 09/07/2014, in a small operations, also with local anaesthetic.
