When the cornea becomes severely diseased and vision in compromised, cornea transplantation may be necessary. Many people with corneal disease can benefit from transplants involving tissue from human donors, which is the most common treatment. However, in many cases, this treatment rapidly fails and an alternate treatment for patients with severe corneal opacity is the artificial cornea implant, Boston K-Pro.
Boston K-Pro is used after standard corneal transplantation has failed or when such a transplant would be unlikely to succeed. It is designed to help patients whose conditions are the most difficult to treat.
Boston K-Pro is known for excellent long-term stability and safety.
