    Question:

    Do you have to take rejection drugs after a cornea transplant?


    Answer:

    Different types of corneal transplants are offered depending on what part of the cornea is damaged. All cornea transplant patients use a topical corticosteroid as local anti-rejection treatment. This may be for a long period of time or may be stopped after a year or more depending on the type of transplant performed. In high-risk cornea transplant cases, oral immune suppression therapy may be added to the topical therapy.
