Need options after Corneal Transplant Rejection
I had a corneal transplant three years ago and it's now showing signs of rejection. If anyone knows the options after corneal transplant rejection I'd really appreciate hearing it. I've got medicine to try to stop the rejection process from my doctor and am going to go through with it to see if it will work, but if it doesn't I'd like to know what options are available if I decide not to try another transplant, as I've been told that chances of rejection increase with each attempted corneal transplant. Understanding that I may not have vision in that eye I'm wanting to know if there are alternatives such as an artifical covering for the cornea area. Please help with ideas if you can thanks.
