Corneal and Keratoconus surgery

Corneal disorders cause a reduction in visual quality due to both a change in shape and a loss of transparency in the cornea itself.

Keratoconus is basically a variation in the shape of the cornea.
It may be corrected with:

  • Use of specific contact lenses
  • Implant of INTACS
  • Cross-Linking
  • Lamellar transplant
  • Penetrating Keratoplasty (Full Thickness Transplant)

The other most frequent corneal disorders of surgical interest include:

  • Pellucid Degeneration - treatable with cuneiform resection
  • Corneal Leukoma - treatable with surface EXCIMER LASER - PTK or with penetrating/lamellar transplant
  • Endothelial Decompensation - treatable with endothelial transplant
