The Department of Ophthalmology at Mayo Clinic has a long history of research in cornea transplants. Mayo Clinic researchers have conducted detailed studies of corneal function.

Researchers conduct follow-up studies on people who have had cornea transplants to determine the treatment's long-term effects on the eye, and to study the advantages and disadvantages of different types of transplants such as lamellar or full-thickness transplants.

In addition, new methods and techniques of corneal transplantation are being developed and studied in the laboratory. Read more about cornea research at Mayo Clinic.
