Eyeball transplant is the transfer of eye ball required for the receptor which is been in damaged. Eyeball is replaced by the sophisticated techniques between the two individuals such as donor and receptor.
The basic idea is straightforward: Doctors would implant a donor eye in the recipient's eye socket. The vascular system to the eye would be re-established, as would the eye’s musculature to enable normal movement. The greater challenge – and focus of the two-year project – would be devising effective methods to reconnect the eye's neuronal wiring to the brain through the optic nerve, which contains more than 1 million nerve cells and transmits visual information from the retina. The biggest scientific hurdle in eyeball transplantation is that when you cut the optic nerve, the nerve cells do not regrow, hence sight cannot be restored.
