The front part of the eye, consisting of collagen, which has no blood vessels and round in shape is called the cornea. The functions of the cornea - is the breaking of the incoming rays of light into the eye and concentrating them on the retina. That the cornea did not prevent the penetration of light into the eye and correct refraction must remain transparent. If the shell variable or corneal clouding, vision deteriorates, which may eventually lead to blindness.

  Very often treatment of diseases such is change of a cornea or a keratoplasty. Annually worldwide transplantation of a cornea is carried out to tens of thousands of patients. In Israel the keratoplasty is used at treatment of dystrophy of a cornea and an infection, and also at traumatic damages of a cornea.

  Cornea hems, chemical burn of a cornea, Fuchs's dystrophy, crushing traumatic defeat of a cornea, hypostasis of a cornea, ulcer are situations in which change of a corneal cover is carried out.

  Before cornea transplantation the patient passes full inspection in Israel for identification of contraindications to change. The special attention is paid to diseases of eyes besides cornea change as they can prevent a keratoplasty. In that case to the patient treatment is appointed and only after it the opertion is carried out. Also to cornea transplantation in Israel the doctor finds out what medicines the patient accepts. To reduce risk of surgical complications and bleeding a dosage of some medicines probably it is necessary to reduce, or absolutely to stop reception.

  Before operation drops in an eye on which change is planned are sometimes appointed, and also it isn't allowed to accept food after midnight at night before operation. For intravenous injection of drugs and liquids during operation in a vein of a hand the dropper is established. Anesthesia possible two methods: general anesthesia or local introduction of anesthetics. Depending on a state of health, age and other factors in hospitals of Israel the anesthesia method gets out. In case of local anesthesia the patient shouldn't be afraid of blinking or eye closings, it is watched by the surgeon. Both at local, and at the general anesthesia the patient doesn't feel painful feelings.

  Operation on change of a cornea demands exact performance of difficult manipulations on an eye and is carried out with use of an operational microscope. At first the surgeon determines diameter of deleted corneal fabric. Then by means of tools the struck part of a cornea in the form of a circle is removed. To the place of remote part of a cornea settles down donor, the corresponding size, which by means of synthetic threads. it is sewn to remained own cornea of the patient.

  At completion of operation the surgeon checks that again "created" corneal lens didn't differ from the correct sphere and was the most equal. Depending on result of check via the special tool Ч keratoscopy Ч the surgeon can change a tension of seams. At the very end of operation under a conjunctiva of the operated eye the injection protecting it from an excess inflammation and an infection becomes. After cornea transplantation the eye is closed by a soft bandage which needs to be carried from one to five weeks.

   The hem on a bessosudisty cornea is formed long time and many months tendency to a divergence of seams will remain. Therefore careful attitude to an eye, an exception of injuries of an eye and a hard physical activity is required. For faster healing of an eye, and also prevention of postoperative complications, at treatment in Israel to the patient various eye drops, ointments and gels for a period of up to two months are appointed. 8-12 months later after operation from an eye seams are removed.

   At cornea change in Israel of 99% of operations take place successfully. Using new techniques excellent results of sight are reached and the fastest recovery is guaranteed.
