My grandfather has lost an eye during eye operation. The eyeball of one of his eye has become white, because of which he cannot see with that eye. He can see only with 1 eye. So I just want to ask that doctors use the body parts of a dead body such as eye, hand, leg, kidney and other parts of a dead body for old people or not?

Yes we also use cornea of eyeball. If eye of your grandfather is ok and if only cornea is damaged then yes vision can be restored consult local cornea specilist.
