Vision loss in one eye post an accident, have implanted an artificial eye. Is an whole eye transplantation possible?

Hello Sir, I had lost my vision in an accident. In that accident a wooden stick hit my left eye and a severe blood loss was happened. After that i had undergone a surgery. But no use of that surgery. I lost my entire vision in my left eye. Now i am carrying an artificial eye in my left eye. I would like to ask you only one thing. Does any one invented whole eye transplantation? I don t want vision for my eye, but i just want a realistic eye to be transplanted. Is it possible? I had searched in web and found that a Russian doctor had transplanted whole eye for a woman in the year 2000. Please do needful help for me. I will be waiting for your reply.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Whole eye transplantation is not possible only corneal transplantation is possible the surgery is called as keratoplasty. It is not possible in your case as you are using artificial eye.
However for cosmetic purpose you can undergo artificial prosthesis implantation and artificial which will look like your other eye. For this you need to choose the implant color depending on the iris color of the other eye. Do consult your eye doctor or ocularist he will guide you for further treatment.
Thank you
