Cornea & Refractive Surgery (Lasik /Lasek)

Corneal infections pose the major threat to the health of cornea in our environment. It is the leading cause of damage to cornea, resulting in corneal blindness. Many microorganisms can cause corneal ulcer, of which main agents are the bacteria and fungi. Virus is also well known to cause corneal infections. In corneal infection, there will be pain, reduction in vision and watering or discharge from the eye. Treatment is mainly with medication in the form of eye drops. Some cases that do not heal with medicines may require surgery – corneal transplantation for proper healing.

Injuries are very common and they can result from minor to very serious damage to cornea, it is important to identify the extent of injury and treat them immediately. The outcome of corneal injury improves with early detection and treatment.

Treatment for Refractive Errors

  • Eye Glasses or Contact Lenses:  These are the most common methods of correcting refractive errors. They work by refocusing light rays on the retina, compensating for the shape of your eye.
  • Refractive Surgery:  Refractive surgical procedure intends to reduce a person’s dependency on glasses or contact lenses. Refractive surgery is one of the best options to correct or improve your vision. These surgical procedures are used to adjust your eye’s focusing ability by reshaping the cornea, or front surface of your eye.
