Dear Vineel,
Sorry for the delayed reply.
As per your query, you need to firstly understand that vision is basically from the optic nerve and the retina. In your case, you have been already examined in 2 great eye centres in india, and I am sure that there is some irreversible cause that has been discovered due to which vision cannot be regained.
regarding the cosmetic treatment, yes, there are many lenses available, which range from scleral lenses to other specially designed kinds.
Corneal tattos are not recommended by most doctors due to its long term risk of inducing cancer and other such issues.

However, I would recommend you visit us when you are in Mumbai next, and meet Dr Jatin Asher, our specialist in cornea for such reasons and take it further from there.

You may call us on +91 66921000 at Shroff Eye Hospital for the same.

Best Regards,
Dr Anand Shroff
