Anterior Segment Transplantation

Anterior Segment Transplantation - Start  
Anterior Segment Transplantation - End  

The anterior segment transplantation can provide visual improvement in some rare cases. The anterior segment graft includes sclera, limbus and cornea from a donor eye.

The autotransplant consist of a graft of the patient’s own tissues from one eye to the other. It is indicated in the cases of a dense extensive corneal scar or corneal melt on a potentially seeing eye while the other eye has a clear cornea and an eye without light perception due to retinal or optic nerve lesions. Best results are to be expected with a graft which uses the patient’s own tissues as donor material.
