Research

The Department of Ophthalmology at Mayo Clinic has a long history of research in cornea transplants. Doctors and scientists at Mayo Clinic 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 cornea transplantation are being developed and studied in the laboratory. Read more about cornea research at Mayo Clinic.
