What is Corneal Transplant Rejection?

What is Corneal Transplant Rejection?

  • Corneal Transplant Rejection: A corneal graft is the replacement of damaged corneal tissue with a health cornea. Sometimes the body's immune system may reject the new tissue. Figures vary but roughly a tenth of corneal transplant patients have problems with rejection in the short term and about a third suffer rejection symptoms within the first five years after surgery. Rejection can occur months or even years after the transplant. Transplants involving both eyes increase the risk of rejection. Old patients tend to have fewer problems with rejection.
