Information About Cornea Services

The cornea is the translucent, round window on the front of the eye, which acts as a protection mechanism and refracts light to provide clear vision.

The KAMRA corneal inlay is surgically implanted into a tiny opening in the eye to correct presbyopia and reduce dependence on bifocals or readers.

Keratoconus causes the cornea to become abnormally thin and bulge into a cone-like shape, resulting in decreased visual acuity or blindness over time.

Corneal cross-linking is a cutting-edge treatment for keratoconus that works to strengthen the structure of the cornea to prevent further weakening.

Dr. Chu performs both full- and partial-thickness corneal transplants to remove diseased or damaged tissue and replace it with a healthy donor sample.

Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) is a partial-thickness corneal transplant used to remove and replace damaged corneal layers.

PTK

Phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) uses state-of-the-art lasers to treat scarred corneal tissue or other irregularities to help improve eye health.
