Can eye transplant help in getting back my sight?

I have been a type 1 diabetic for almost 40 years. Because of this, I have lost sight in my left eye and my right eye has limited sight. Is there such a thing as an eye transplant that could help me and where do I receive more information regarding this? Thank you very much

You are loosing sight for complication of diabetic retinopathy. This can be treated by photo coagulation of micro aneurism by laser beam. there is nothing like eye transplantation
