Diagnosis: Corneal transplant

I did a corneal transplant at the Assuta clinic. I began to see in my right eye two days after the operation. I am very happy that I had my surgery here.

Diagnosis: Corneal transplant

Already on the third day (as soon as I passed the examination) I had a cornea transplant. The operation lasted about an hour, I was conscious, but did not feel anything. I work at a computer, a little more than six months have passed, my vision has not deteriorated, there are no complications.

Diagnosis: Corneal transplant

Israeli ophthalmologists helped restore vision. The corneal transplant operation was performed under local anesthesia, but I did not feel pain. I was terribly worried that they would remove the stitches, but they dissolved on their own.

Diagnosis: Corneal transplant

I had a corneal transplant at the Rambam clinic. The operation did not have to wait long, everything went well, vision was fully restored after about 2 months.

Diagnosis: Corneal transplant

I want to thank the specialists of the Sourasky clinic, who helped me restore normal vision. Before that, I consulted with several ophthalmologists about the blurry picture. They picked up glasses for me, prescribed various drugs, but the effect of them was short-lived. At the Sourasky clinic, I was diagnosed with keratoconus and offered to do a laser corneal transplant. Now I have been seeing clearly for several months without tension and pain in my eyes.
