Can full eye transplant treat Roseola?

I have a childhood condition from "Roseola". I had many eye straightening operations on my left ey and my vision is over 20/300. I was wondering if mondern medicine has come up with a complete eye transplant to restore sight in the eye? I can only see the first letter in the eye chart with one eye and the other eye has great vision. Let me know if they came up with a solution to my problem.

thanks,

You eye with less vision is probably an Amblyopic or LAZY EYE. Hence any surgicaal intervention may not give additional benefit. Take care of your good eye by using glasses or protective goggles.
