    Well, you may know that the cornea is the tissue on the very front of the eye. When the cornea becomes swollen, you may need corneal transparent to cure it. For the surgery, it has been proven that it is safe. There are still some tips you need to pay more attention to. For example, you should not wear contact lenses and makeup in the first several weeks. Also, do not have some dirty objects, even water getting into your eyes, or it will make your eyes infected. Also, some heavy exercises, which can hurt your eyes, should be avoided. Anyway, just be careful about it.

    The cornea is the forward-most portion of the eye and it is the main "window" of the eye. If you got damage to the cornea it can cause a normally crystal clear cornea to turn white or gray, which will result in blurry vision or even loss of vision. Thus you need the corneal transplant surgery to restore it. There are many restrictions after the surgery. The restrictions are as follows: You may not bend at the waist for more than 10 minutes at a time, but may squat at the knees.You may not lift or push anything heavier than 15 pounds, including grandchildren, for 2 weeks. You may not take heavy exercise of any kind for 3 weeks. You may not swim for 3 weeks. You should not read for more than 10 minutes at a time for 2 weeks. Theses are of great importance and must be followed.
