PKP Surgery can help restore clear vision and reduce pain and inflammation
Benefits of PKP surgery
There are several benefits to having PKP which include:
- Improved vision: The primary benefit of penetrating keratoplasty is improved vision. The procedure helps to restore clear vision in eyes affected by corneal diseases and injuries.
- Reduction of pain: Penetrating keratoplasty can reduce pain and inflammation associated with corneal diseases and injuries.
- Improved comfort: After the procedure, patients typically report improved comfort in their eyes.
- Reduced risk of infection: The procedure helps to reduce the risk of infection in the eye since the patient’s own tissue is used to replace the damaged tissue.
- Stable results: The results of penetrating keratoplasty are generally stable and long-lasting.
