Keratoconus

I am diagnosed with Keratoconus in both eyes , my doctor said that disease has advanced more in the right eye and the only way to treat it is the corneal transplatation .I did a pentacam too
I have some questions now
How dangerous is this surgery?
how common is this case?
how successful are these surgery?

You should see a corneal specialist.  Collagen cross linking and Intacs are treatment short of a transplant.

Thank you very much doctor , yes my doctor is an ophthalmologist surgeons , she told me to make a Collagen cross linking for the left eye becouse the cornea in the left eye is not damaged as in the right eye, for the right eye the only wat to repair cornea is corneal transplatation
