Types of Corneal Disease
As a result of the vulnerability of the cornea, there are several corneal diseases and disorders that can affect your vision. You can count on Vistar Eye Center’s cornea surgeons to work closely with you to discuss your individual needs and work through the best treatment options.
At Vistar, two types of cornea transplants restore vision, reduce pain and improve the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea. Both outpatient procedures are performed locally by Vistar doctors, using corneal tissue from a donor.
Cross-Linking for Keratoconus
Keratoconus, often referred to as “KC,” is an eye condition that progressively weakens the cornea. This condition can cause a cone-like bulge and optical irregularity that can result in significant vision impairment over time. Our talented surgeons at Vistar now offer “Cross-Linking,” the first and only therapeutic outpatient procedure for those affected by Keratoconus.
