Traditional corneal transplant consists in replacing the whole central cornea with a new cornea coming from a donor
Full-depth corneal transplant is performed today less and less, in favour of the most modern lamellar corneal transplant techniques, that are: advanced keratoconus and full-depth corneal scars.
Vision recovery after full-depth corneal transplant is a gradual process and usually takes up no more than 10-12 months..
This kind of transplant is the first corneal transplant technique that has ever been performed. Is it still the most widespread technique worldwide. It consists in replacing a central full-depth portion of the damaged cornea with a healthy cornea coming from a donor.
Today, it is possible to perform corneal transplant with a Femtosecond Laser, in order to achieve a higher precision while cutting corneas.
During corneal transplant post-op it is important to schedule checkup appointments every 30-60 days for the first 12 months. Suture is usually removed after 6-18 months.
10-15% of patients experience rejections that can usually be treated pharmacologically, without having the need to perform another transplant surgery. Rejection risk is always present during the whole patient’s lifespan: this is why it is of great importance to immediately check every strange event, even a seemingly harmless red eye.
Dr. Badalà performs corneal transplant with corneal tissues coming from the Veneto Mestre Corneal Bank and Monza Corneal Bank. We suggest to undergo corneal transplant only in specialized centers where lamellar transplant is a viable option.
Dr. Badalà performs cornela transplant in Milan and Catania and works together with the most important corneal centers.

Problem: Corneal diseasesSolution: DMEK Corneal Endothelium Transplant
A few years ago I discovered I had a quite rare disease called "Fuchs' dystrophy," which affects the cornea.
I had troubles driving and was always seeing through the fog. The fog was getting worse and worse, making it... Keep on reading this review difficult to distinguish different objects. I had great difficulty, even to watch TV.
I was considering myself on the way to blindness and was wondering how could I deal with my new "low vision status". I did not give up and started looking around!
I finally found a specialist using cutting edge technology: Dr Badala. He explained me my condition and reassured me! Then he proposed a new corneal endothelium transplant called DMEK. I finally decided and underwent surgery.
I faced some difficulties, like lying down supine for about 48 hours, but it was worth it! Now my low vision is just a memory!
I started to see immediately: everything was clear! I could even make out the pictures on TV! Coming back home, I saw my cat with its true colors in contrast: black and white, rather than an indefinite gray as before surgery !! So? !! ... Thanks a lot Dr. Badalà!
