What Is an Eye Tooth Surgery ?

Tooth In Eye Surgery, some folks call it the Eye Tooth Surgery. is a procedure that removes a tooth from a patient and uses the lamina to restore vision in the most extreme cases of macular degeneration. It is rarely done in the United States but is common in Europe and Asia to treat these types of severe cases. The procedure, known as modified osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis is the procedure of implanting a tooth into an eye to hold a prosthetic lens.

The success rate in these surgeries is pretty well all considering. Not an entire part of the tooth is implanted its a partial implant that helps keep an artificial lens in place intact to the bone and eye socket joint.
