if a blind person wants to change his eyes than only its cornea will change or the whole eye will be changed?

Eye transplant happens only in case of cornea...only reecently retinal transplant has been initiated.
Whole eye transplant is therotical possible.
Practically such process is possible only post tissue mapping....
Most common eye transplant that is done is that of cornea, which does not require any tissue mapping between donor and the receipient.
We hope that clarifies your query.
