The cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped front surface of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. It plays a vital role in vision by refracting and focusing light onto the retina at the back of the eye. The cornea consists of several layers, including the outer epithelium, the middle stroma, and the inner endothelium.

Sensitivity to Light (Photophobia):


Redness and Irritation


Excessive Tearing

Vision screenings using adequate testing equipment ?

Vision is the ability to perceive and interpret the surrounding world through the eyes. It is a complex process involving the eyes, optic nerves, and the brain. Regular vision screening is crucial for maintaining eye health and detecting potential issues early on. Screening methods include visual acuity tests, which measure the sharpness of vision, and eye examinations that evaluate eye alignment, eye movements, and overall eye health.

Other screening tools may involve assessing color vision, depth perception, and peripheral vision. These screenings help identify refractive errors, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, as well as more serious conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration, facilitating timely intervention and appropriate vision correction measures.

Treatments for Corneal Disease

Contact Lenses Ophthalmologists often prescribe special contact lenses for patients with keratoconus or corneal dystrophies. The most suitable type of lens varies depending on the severity of the disease.

Transplants Doctors treat many forms of this corneal disease by removing the cornea and replacing it. This treatment can help people with iridocorneal endothelia syndrome, keratoconus, lattice dystrophy and several other varieties.

Crosslinking An eye doctor may use corneal crosslinking to treat keratoconus. This relatively recent procedure employs ultraviolet rays. It delays the disease’s progression by stabilizing corneal tissue.

Laser Therapy It’s possible to treat many infections and dystrophies with a computer-controlled excimer laser. In some situations, an ophthalmologist can use phototherapeutic keratectomy as a substitute for transplantation. The laser destroys diseased or irregular tissue and allows the body to replace it. Patients often recover quickly and enjoy rapid improvements in their vision. Laser therapy works best when only the cornea’s surface layer needs repair.

FAQ-Cornea Surgery at Sarvdrishti Hospital

Corneal diseases are conditions that affect the clear, dome-shaped outer layer of the eye called the cornea.

Some common corneal diseases include keratoconus, corneal dystrophies, corneal infections, and corneal abrasions.

Symptoms of corneal diseases may include blurred vision, eye pain, redness, sensitivity to light, excessive tearing, and decreased vision clarity.

Corneal diseases are typically diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination, which may include visual acuity tests, corneal topography, slit-lamp examination, and sometimes, corneal imaging.

Treatment options for corneal diseases depend on the specific condition but may include medications, eye drops, contact lenses, corneal transplant surgery, or other surgical procedures.

Up to six months after LASIK eye surgery, blurred vision is typical, primarily due to the eyes' dryness.
