About Corneal Surgery
Corneal surgery is a specialized procedure that involves the treatment of various eye conditions that affect the cornea, which is the clear, protective outer layer of the eye. In India, there are several top-rated hospitals and clinics that offer high-quality corneal surgery services.
Some of the popular types of corneal surgeries performed in India include:
Corneal Transplantation: This procedure involves replacing a damaged or diseased cornea with a healthy one from a donor. There are two types of corneal transplants - full thickness and partial thickness.
Pterygium Excision: This surgery involves removing a benign growth on the cornea that can cause discomfort and affect vision.
Keratoplasty: This is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the cornea to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
Corneal Cross-Linking: This is a treatment for keratoconus, a progressive eye disease that causes the cornea to become thin and bulge outwards. The procedure involves strengthening the cornea with UV light and riboflavin.
