There are several corneal transplant centers in Italy. The best thing to do is rely onto a transplant center that performs all the latest surgical techniques.
The different kinds of corneal transplant complement each other: that is why you should contact a center that has a great on the field experience, able to performa all kinds of transplant (lamellar corneal surgery, artificial corneal surgery, and so on).
For example, centers that can perform anterior lamellar transplant DALK are only a few because this technique is pretty complex even though allow for a quicker post-op with less complications.
Dr. Badalà performs this kind of corneal surgery and all the other kinds in Milan and Catania.

Problem: Corneal diseases, Herpes virus and eyeSolution: DALK anterior lamellar corneal transplant
Many years ago, herpes virus left me with a corneal scar. Over time, I alternated periods of "quiet" to relapses of various seriousness (included a corneal ulcer).
My eyesight has gradually worsened to about 1/10.

Most of the eye doctors I have consulted advised me against perforating corneal transplantation.
Then, I read on the internet about lamellar transplant technique. The first consultation (4 years ago at another medical center) left me with some concerns. Following the deterioration and difficulty in performing some simple tasks with one eye (e.g. drive), I tried again.
After having found the name of Dr. Badalà, I booked a visit. After preliminary tests I described the situation, he reassured me (I am a quite anxious person!). He proposed me the surgery, explaining the advantages, risks and prospects and I decided to undergo surgery, which was performed under general anesthesia.
The operation was successful, without any pain or postoperative problems (related to anesthesia).
After a few hours I already got up, the same day they removed my blindfold and I had already gained 1/10, how exciting!
The next day I was discharged, and I returned home by train.
I recovered my daily life immediately, with a few days of rest and appropriate care.
Now (six months after surgery) I am rigorously following therapy ,but I have no specific difficulties and obstacles (only some discomfort related to the sun and summer heat).
The eye is slowly improving, even someone asks me what has happened since the color is back like the other (before the opacity was so obvious that the two eyes seemed different color!) and at each check-up visual acuity earns some points (after six months I see 7/10 versus 1/10 in advance).
I thank Dr. Badalà for guiding me to this decision with the serenity which me and my family needed, and how he continues to guide me in the post-transplant course.
