Ophthalmology & full corneal transplant

Mediclinic Welcare Hospital’s team of ophthalmologists offers tertiary eye care services, using a wide spectrum of equipment and expertise, to treat and manage a panorama of eye diseases involving both anterior and posterior segments of the eye.

Services include a full thickness corneal transplant service (penetrating keratoplasty), the most widely-used technique for corneal transplantation.  A damaged cornea can distort and block the normal path of light into the eye, resulting in a significant loss of vision. A corneal transplant can result in the restoration of sight for those affected.
