Cornea is an immune privileged site and an immune privileged tissue which provides protection from the Immune-Mediated destruction. Human Corneal Transplantation (Keratoplasty) is considered to have superior short and long term outcomes and minimal requirement for immunosuppression compared to Solid Organ Transplants because of the inherent immune privilege and tolerogenic mechanisms associated with the anterior segment of the eye.
