Besides Refractive Surgery, Amritsar Eye Clinic offers the following services to patients of corneal disease.
It is used for the study of the corneal endothelium- the health of the endothelial cells, their morphology, their density and other numerous parameters.
For the analysis of corneal topography. Both surfaces of the cornea, anterior and posterior can be analyzed. This is particularly important before Refractive Surgery, and also in the detection of various other corneal disorders like ectasias.
This device is used to assess the cornea and the anterior segment of the eye by the technique of optical coherence tomography. High resolution imaging of the cornea aids in the assessment of various pathologies.
Used for the detection and measurement of higher order aberrations before Refractive Surgery. The correction of these aberrations leads to a better quality of vision after surgery.
Photo-therapeutic Keratectomy (PTK)
The laser guided ablation of the cornea for the treatment of corneal opacities and some dystrophies.
Corneal Collagen Cross-linking
Also referred to as C3R, is a new modality of treatment for Keratoconus. It may stop the progression of the corneal bulge, sometimes even inducing regression.
A pterygium is a abnormal triangular, fibro-vascular growth of tissue that encroaches upon the cornea. Usually, the condition develops in people who are exposed to hot, dry and dusty climates such as farmers and outdoor workers. Pterygium surgeries, with conjunctival-limbal grafts, to reduce their recurrence rates, are regularly performed at the centre.
