Advanced Corneal Treatments

What Is Cornea Subspecialty?

When dealing with disorders of the cornea, it is important that you seek treatment from professionals who have received advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of corneal issues. Our team has extensive experience in performing corneal transplants and has assisted the FDA in the development of new corneal treatments.

Keratoconus Treatment

Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea becomes thinner and develops a cone-like bulge, which causes visual distortions. We diagnose keratoconus and offer corneal transplant surgery, scleral lenses, and Intacs® to restore the shape of the cornea.

Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium is a pink or red benign growth on the white of the eye. Also called “surfer’s eye,” this condition can cause astigmatism, irritation, blurred vision, or stinging. In serious cases, we can remove the growth and transplant your own tissue to replace it.

Corneal Transplants

We offer both full-thickness and partial (DSAEK) corneal transplants to treat infection, trauma, and keratoconus. DSAEK is less invasive and generally requires a shorter recovery time. Our ophthalmologists will evaluate your corneas to determine which treatment option is best suited to your needs.
