What you are seeing in this photo is the third corneal transplant that this eye has had to endure. There is an ulcer in the center of this cornea that has not healed despite many weeks of treatment with antibiotics and other medications. You are viewing a corneal transplant that is in the process of being rejected. The purpose of posting this photo is to enlighten those viewing this image that rejection and infection will always be a risk factor in corneal transplant surgery. This type of eye surgery should never be taken lightly. All non-invasive technologies should be considered before corneal transplant surgery is done.
