Have been coming back here since 2014. They offer a wide variety of good quality frames with a tag price that you'll love. They also offer sports goggles for a knockout price. The glass grade results are right on point due to their precise vision acuity test conducted. Production time varies on your product, on my experience, the longest time i have to wait to get my glasses delivered was 3 days.

What you need to know about Cornea Transplant in Philippines

Riverside City College assistant professor of nursing Kristin Fontaine with a picture of her infected left eye before the cornea transplant in April 2015

Cornea Transplant, or keratoplasty or corneal grafting, is a surgical procedure to replace damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy layer of corneal tissue that comes from a donor. The cornea is the clear layer surface of your eye that helps focus light to allow you to see clearly. A cornea transplant can restore your vision, reduce pain or other symptoms associated with diseases of the cornea, and improve the appearance of your damaged cornea.  

What does a Cornea Transplant Procedure Involve?

There are three types of cornea transplant: penetrating keratoplasty (PK), partial-thickness cornea transplant, and endothelial keratoplasty. The three are performed under local anesthetic and sedative. The most common type is penetrating keratoplasty, during which your surgeon replaces all layers of your cornea.

MyMediTravel currently lists 14 facilities in Philippines offering Cornea Transplant procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Cornea Transplant can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

How Long Should I Stay in Philippines for a Cornea Transplant Procedure?

Plan to stay in Philippines for around 10 to 14 days or until your doctor says it is okay for your travel home because you will have to attend follow-up hospital checkups to have your eyes checked. If your surgeon used dissolving stitches, you will not need for stitches to be removed, but you still need to allow your eye to heal before flying back home.

What's the Recovery Time for Cornea Transplant Procedures in Philippines?

Your eyes will be red and sensitive to light for 1-2 weeks, make sure you rest as much as possible during this period. It can take a year or more for your eye to fully recover, but talk to your surgeon as to when you can get back to your normal routine, exercise, and work.

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Cornea Transplant Procedures in Philippines?

After the surgery, you will need to protect your eye from injury, avoid pressing or rubbing your eye, and wear eyeglasses or an eye shield to protect your eyes. Your surgeon will give you eye drops, be sure to take it as prescribed. Your surgeons will also give you aftercare instructions, be sure to follow the instructions carefully.

What's the Success Rate of Cornea Transplant Procedures in Philippines?

A cornea transplant is effective, safe, and has a high success rate. However, 3 out of 10 people who have a cornea transplant experience organ rejection, which is a problem that occurs when the body’s immune system sees the transplanted tissue as something that should not be there. Other side effects and risks of Cornea transplants include infection, bleeding, glaucoma, cataracts, detached retina, and swelling of the cornea.

Are there Alternatives to Cornea Transplant Procedures in Philippines?

The alternatives for cornea transplant are contact lenses, phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK), intrastromal corneal ring segments, and corneal collagen cross-linking. Make sure to discuss with your doctor the best option for your eye.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

If you experience any painful symptoms before the procedure, you will not feel those symptoms anymore after a cornea transplant. Also, if your vision is impaired before the procedure, a cornea transplant will improve your vision so you will have close to 20/20 vision.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
