The cornea is said to be a transparent layer in the front of the eye positioned just opposite the iris of the “eye color”. In fact, the eye color is iris dependent, which varies from person to person, but the cornea is completely transparent like a window and allows the light to enter the eye. The cornea also redraws the light so that images of objects close and close on the retina can be focused. Corneal transplantation or “keratoplasty” is a practice in which the cornea that is damaged is replaced by a transparent cornea.
Reasons for corneal transplantation
Creates better visibility in cases where corneal opacity has been blurred.
Corneal perforation to protect the eyes of the cornea.
Eye pain treatment in cases of severe pain or corneal swelling.
Eradicating infection in cases where corneal infection is not treated with medication
Immediately after corneal transplantation, the eye is severely shocked and may even suffer from mild blows. Therefore, it is necessary to use plastic shields in the first weeks after the bonding, so as not to hit the eye. Also during this time you should avoid bending, pulling and removing heavy objects. During this time, you should not bend your head forward. If you have to remove something from the ground, do not bend your waist, but bend your knees and keep your head firm. In the case of scrubbing the head, make sure that the water and shampoo do not enter the eyes. The only allowed sports activity is in this light walks. In this period of rubbing and scratching the eyes should be avoided.
Note: If your job is office, then you can return to work after two weeks, but if your job requires physical activity, you must rest for at least six weeks to return to work.
