Cornea: Window of the Eyes

The cornea is the transparent structure on the front of the eye through which we see. It is the tissue that is reshaped during laser vision correction. It begins the process of seeing by focusing the light rays onto the retina. There are five layers to the cornea, each with a distinct function: Epithelium, Bowman’s membrane, Stroma, Descemet’s membrane and Endothelium.

Our Cornea and External Eye Diseases Expert specializes in diseases of the eye’s external surface and cornea (such as inflammatory, infectious and degenerative diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva), Dry Eyes, Computer Vision Syndrome and Contact lens-related problems.

Corneal Transplant Surgeons perform state-of-the-art procedures for numerous conditions that distort or cloud the cornea, including Descemet’s stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and other highly specialized transplants for very uncommon sight-threatening corneal conditions.

We at InstaVision also provide the latest options for treatment of Keratoconus, a condition in which the cornea is not strong enough to hold its round shape and bulges outwards like a cone and results in significant vision impairment. The treatment for Keratoconus has two aspects, first to stop its progression by Corneal Collagen Crosslinking and second is to provide aid to improve the impaired vision by Contact lenses, Intrastromal rings or Implantable Contact Lens (ICL). Severe cases may require corneal transplant.
