Possible risks

Graft rejection occurs in 5-30% of patients, a complication possible with any procedure involving tissue transplantation from another person. Since the cornea normally contains no blood vessels, it experiences a very low rate of rejection. Generally, blood typing and tissue typing are not needed in cornea transplants, and no close match between donor and recipient is required. Symptoms of rejection include persistent discomfort, sensitivity to light, redness, or a change in vision.
