Simply put, a cataract is a “clouding” of the lens in your eye. The lens, located just behind the iris, or the coloured part of your eye,
works like the lens of a camera. It picks up images, then focuses the lights, colours, and shapes on the retina – the transmitter located at the back of your
eye that sends the images to your brain.

Corneal transplantation
What is the cornea?
The cornea is the transparent tissue on the front part of the eye. Not only is it important for the structural integrity of the eye, but its curvature and clarity helps the eye focus. A healthy cornea is required for normal vision. Diseases and injuries of the cornea are an important cause of blindness in our community.

“What is corneal transplantation?
A corneal transplant is the way of removing your damaged cornea and replacing it with a healthy cornea from the eye of a suitable donor. The donor will be a person who has (or whose family has) given consent for their corneas to be used for medical purposes after their death. The donor cornea is thoroughly checked and prepared to ensure there is no possibility of it being infected.
