Acanthamoeba infection

I am 25 years old and have had the bad luck of obtaining anacathamoeba keratitis from having a scratch on my cornea. I am currently in the process of taking the eye drops and oral medication. My vision is practically nothing in that eye due to the scarring that has occurred. It took about 3 months to get the correct diagnosis on my eye. I was wondering what the percentages were for a successful corneal transplant and what vision would be like?

Success is very high--about 95% or so.  However, it may take over a year to obtain good vision.
