Corneal transplantation Treatment in Thailand

The doctor uses a special instrument to keep your eye open while removing damaged corneal tissue and replacing it with healthy donor tissue. Doctors can do a full-thickness corneal transplant (penetrating keratoplasty) or a partial thickness transplant (lamellar keratoplasty).

 

Surgical treatment for glaucoma Treatment in Thailand

The doctor inserts a thin tube called a shunt into the white of your eye for glaucoma implants; the tube allows excess fluid to drain out of your eye, decreasing your eye pressure.
