Ten corneal transplants expected to be carried out on the Rock a year, says Consultant

Around ten corneal transplants are expected to be carried out per year in Gibraltar.

This is according to the GHA's Consultant Opthalmologist, Dr Magdalena Popiela, who spearheaded the initiative to bring this option to the Rock.

She says there are quite a few patients locally with corneal disease - which can affect their vision.
