The Mayo Clinic Department of Ophthalmology has a long history of research in cornea transplants. For more than 30 years, Mayo Clinic researchers have conducted some of the most detailed studies of corneal function in the United States. Currently, researchers are conducting follow-up studies on cornea transplant patients to determine the treatment's long-term effects on the eye. In addition, new methods of corneal cell transplantation are being developed in the laboratory.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on cornea transplants on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
