corneal Surgery

The cornea is a clear, dome-shaped covering of the eye that is responsible for transmitting light and protecting the internal structures. There are many conditions that can alter the clarity and shape of the cornea and can significantly reduce the quality of vision. Fortunately, using advanced minimally invasive technology, the field of corneal surgery has been revolutionized and vision recovery is faster than ever.

Common Conditions of the Cornea

Fuchs’ Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy

A genetic condition in which the water pumping cells of the cornea’s innermost layer are lost over time. This results in corneal swelling which may blur vision.
Corneal swelling/scarring

A variety of mechanisms can lead to corneal swelling or scarring. These include previous eye surgeries, corneal infections, and trauma.

Keratoconus is a progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea that makes it difficult to see. In some patients, Keratoconus has progressed past the point where glasses and soft contact lenses can help.  (See section on Corneal Cross-Linking)
