My sister's cornea has been damaged by ruptured contact lenses. She has been advised corneal replacement surgery. Is this covered ?

Mostly, if the cornea gets damage accidentally it can be covered under health insurance policy.

This procedure can restore vision, curb pain and improve the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea. A corneal transplant typically is covered by health insurance.
Generally ruptured contact lenses causing corneal damage is accidental in nature hence surgery required for correction of same is admissible. However, it is better to check with the insurance company in advance.
