Hello Lalalala12,


What is meant by "eye transplant" in the medical world is the transplantation of the front part of the clear layer of the eyeball (cornea). The act of corneal transplant is referred to as keratoplasty. The purpose of this action is not to enlarge the eyes but to improve visual function and improve in terms of cosmetics in the case of a white-colored matrix (scar tissue) that appears on the cornea.


Now to make the eyes look big, the type of surgery performed is to operate on the eyelid, so that the eye opening / gap looks bigger. In addition, the operation called blepharoplasty can also make eyelid folds, improve the asymmetrical shape of the eyelids, improve the function of closing and opening the eyelids, and so on.


But if what you mean is an eyeball whose size / volume is smaller than the size of a normal person's eyeball, then it is called microphthalmia. Microphthalmia occurs due to eye development disorders that occur since the fetus. Microphthalmia can be found on one side or both eyes. This microphthalmic condition can be followed by poor vision function / blindness. In some cases, microftalmia is associated with fetal alcohol syndrome. For complete information about this condition, you can consult an ophthalmologist. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
