Corneal transplant is a surgery to replace the part of a patient’s corneal tissue with a donor’s one. A donor is a deceased person. The cornea has no blood vessels, so the blood group of a donor is not essential.

Artificial replacement or keratoprosthesis is another type of corneal transplant. In this case, surgeons use eye implants. The procedure is prescribed for those patients who have had the failure of a donor corneal tissue.

I planned the trip on my own, buying into advertising, and specially came from another country. There were few patients, but the service was very slow; I waited for an hour at each office. I went in at 10 am, left at 4:30 pm, and had an appointment with the doctors in advance + I adjusted to their schedule due to their travel. The service is disgusting, the staff is indifferent and I had to raise my voice several times to get attention. I paid over $1000 to wait for hours (!) and left with mixed feelings

Doctor of the aphthalmologist Belma Karini, I can only recommend, golden pens! The result of the operation exceeded all expectations not only of mine, but also of the doctor. Special thanks to the translator Dinara, she will not forget anything, she will organize everything, everything is clear and harmonious with her. The clinic is new, the wards are very clean and comfortable. I would say the Chambers are more like a luxury hotel suite. Everything in the shower glistens with towels, shampoos, etc. I RECOMMEND UNIFORMALLY !!!

I had an extremely frustrating experience at the hospital . None of the staff spoke English, which made it nearly impossible to communicate my concerns and questions. To make matters worse, they refused to accept card payments, and instead, they provided third-party payment details, which raised a huge financial red flag for me. To add insult to injury, I was required to pay a deposit of $200 in cash, which I later found out was non-refundable. This is completely unfair and unacceptable. It left me feeling both financially and emotionally distressed, and I wouldn't recommend this hospital to anyone. Clear communication and fair payment practices are fundamental aspects of any healthcare facility, and this hospital failed miserably in both regards. In addition to the communication and payment issues, I must mention that the hospital was located in a completely unsuitable area for tourists. This made the overall experience even more distressing. Visitors to a foreign country expect medical facilities to be accessible and accommodating, but this hospital was situated in a place that made it extremely inconvenient and uncomfortable for travelers. It's an important factor to consider for anyone planning to visit the area and needing medical care.

Mom could not make an accurate diagnosis, and we decided to be examined in Korea. I left a request in bookimed. And what surprised immediately rang. I told you how, all the tests that were done, and I was advised by the Ehwa clinic. We immediately agreed and signed up with a mammologist. Everything is clean in the clinic, all doctors, all medical staff are qualified, and very friendly. The translator was with my mother all the time, and he explained everything very clearly. They quickly took the tests, and immediately established a diagnosis, they said it was necessary to do the operation. The operation lasted 5 hours (general preparation, etc.) after the operations in the clinic 10 days. They did everything neatly, everything had almost healed. I am satisfied with the clinic and the medical coordinators of Bookimed. Thank you all very much!

Keratoplasty, or corneal transplant surgery, is conducted at the Organ Transplant Center of Artemis Hospital. Surgeons of the Center treat keratoconus, eye injuries, ulcers, corneal scarring with the help of corneal replacement.

The procedure lasts for 1-2 hours. A patient returns to the normal activity in 1-2 weeks after the surgery.

Artemis Clinic is among top corneal transplant hospitals in India to perform Descemet's Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK). The surgery is minimally invasive. Surgeons apply 1-2 sutures. The recovery period after DSEK is shorter than after the traditional corneal transplant.

The Center includes the Eye Bank where experts collect eyes from the donors and prepare the tissues for use.

Additional corneal transplant cost

According to the American National Institutes of Health, 1 out of 3 patients faces rejection after the corneal transplant in the first 5 years. In the case of rejection, a patient needs a repeated operation. A patient pays for additional surgery and diagnostics.

Corneal transplant cost also rises because of frequent eye exams. Patients need to undergo eye tests weekly, then monthly to notice possible complications during the 1st year after the procedure. An eye doctor develops the diagnostics schedule for each patient.

After the operation ophthalmologists can prescribe glasses or contact lenses to improve vision. It also affects the cornea replacement surgery cost.

Discounts

Corneal transplant cost in Asian countries is 35-70% lower than in Europe or the USA. Medical tourists worldwide choose India, Turkey or Thailand for organ transplantation including the cornea replacement.

Healthcare services in India, Turkey, and Thailand are at the same high level as in European countries, Israel or the United States. The economic development of these countries causes low corneal transplant cost. They belong to the states with the less developed economy. Nevertheless, the government spends the significant amount of money on the development of medicine here every year.

Pay attention to the fact that only private clinics offer the high level of medicine and experience of doctors.
