Cornea transplant


1. Is it permissible to undergo a cornea transplant? The cornea may be from a recently deceased registered tissue donor, or it could also be artificial.

2. If an artificial cornea isn't suitable/compatible and/or cannot be used, will it then be permissible to use from a donor?


1. Transplanting an artificial cornea is permissible.

2. No.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
