What is Cornea?

The cornea is the clear, outermost layer of the eye that helps to focus incoming light. The light that comes from the external environment should reach the retina for perfect vision; here the cornea is responsible for transporting the light from the external. In that case, when the cornea is affected by some problems your vision gets damaged in certain ways, and corneal eye problems can occur due to injury, infection, inflammation, or other underlying conditions. Corneal issues are something very serious that have to be treated bya renowned cornea specialistto keep your vision safe for your future.

Corneal conditions can be treated with eye patches, bandage contact lenses, prescription eye drops, or pills. Advanced corneal diseases like corneal degeneration, is treated with a cornea transplant surgery or laser treatment. Keratoconus, a situation that causes the cornea shape to be distorted, is time and again managed with unique contact lenses. Autoimmune disorders are tackled by treating the core disease.

Our Cornea Treatment Services Include:
Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK): This full-thickness transplant process surgically removes the damaged or diseased portion of the cornea, follow by the implantation of healthy tissues from a donated human cornea.
Therapeutic Penetrating Keratoplasty (TPK): Therapeutic penetrating keratoplasty (TKP) is recommended for ruthless fungal keratitis to stop the infection, avoid complications, and preserve the globe integrity.
DSEK/DMEK: Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK) surgery uses a small incision to remove the damaged endothelial cells and Descemet’s membrane and replace them with a partial thickness graft counting donor endothelium and Descemet’s membrane.
Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is a partial thickness corneal transplant process. Here the donor Descemet membrane (DM) and endothelium replace the host DM and endothelium.
Hard Contact Lens (RGP & Scleral): Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lens can get better the visual acuity in patients with keratoconus and manage complications after a corneal transplant. Scleral lenses efficiently treat corneal conditions because instead of contacting the cornea, this lens rests its weight on the sclera (eye-white) and vaults over the cornea.
CXL: Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL) inhibits the progress of corneal ectasias. It strengthens corneal tissue by using riboflavin as a photosensitizer.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ's)

corneal abrasions heal within one to three days and seldom progress to corneal attrition or infection.

 An increase in MMPs may affect in abnormal or extreme declination of the ECM, hindering corneal laceration healing and causing RCEs. Other factors that delay corneal rehab include smoking, diabetes, neurotrophic complaints, and optic surface complaint. Studies indicate that distorted cell migration and proliferation signaling pathways and impaired corneal nerve function can delay corneal healing.

Bowman's membrane helps the cornea maintain its shape, and if injured, this class doesn't regenerate and may affect in a scar.
