Corneal Transplant Surgery: A Patient Information Video

Since the first successful corneal transplant surgery in 1905, this operation has become a critical tool in ophthalmology. This video explains the corneal transplantation operation to help patients understand what they can expect after the surgery in terms of possible complications and standard care.

This video was created by a group of McMaster University students in a knowledge translation course for the Demystifying Medicine series: Verina Hanna, Michelle Goldsand, Angie Ibrahim, Bakht Khan, and Ramneet Mann.
