Keratoprosthesis Surgery In Ambala

K-Pro( Artificial Cornea )

Keratoprosthesis is a surgical procedure where a diseased cornea is replaced with an artificial cornea. Traditionally. Keratoprosthesis is recommended after a person has had a failure of one or more donor corneal transplants. While conventional cornea transplant uses donor tissue for transplant, an artificial cornea is used in the Keratoprosthesis procedure. The surgery is performed to restore vision in patients suffering from severely damaged cornea due to congenital (birth) defect, infections, injuries and burns. Keratoprothesis is made of clear plastic with excellent tissue tolerance and optical properties. The KPro has been used include multiple graft failure, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), ocular cicatriclal pemphigoid (OCP), other autoimmune diseases, ocular burns (acid and alkali) and other conditions with poor prognosis of traditional corneal transplant.
