About Cornea 

Cornea is the clear, transparent tissue covering the front of the eye. It serves as a window to allow light to enter the eye.

Vision will be dramatically reduced or lost if the Cornea becomes cloudy due to disease, injury or infection.

Treatment of common corneal conditions like :

  • Infections-Fungal, Viral and Protozoal
  • Recalcitrant Allergic Conditions
  • Keratconus management from contact lens fitting to Collagen Cross Linking
  • Chemical/Mechanical /Thermal injuries treatment-Surgical and Medical Management

Keratoconus is a disease where the cornea becomes thinner than normal, and subsequently starts bulging forward. This causes a blurring of visual images and is a known progressive condition. This is caused due to childhood eye allergy and rubbing habit.

  • Kerotometry is a diagnostic instrument for measuring the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea, for assessing the extent and axis of astigmatism.
  • Corneal collagen cross-linking is a technique which uses UV light and a photo-sensitizer to strengthen chemical bonds in the cornea. The goal of the treatment is to halt progressive and irregular changes in corneal shape.
  • C3R a procedure that aims to stabilize a keratoconic cornea. Kerarings are implantable rings inserted into the cornea to flatten the corneal cone, and helps to improve vision of the patient.
