Cornea & Refractory
What is the Cornea?
The cornea is the outermost layer of the eye; a transparent, dome-like shaped surface, one which covers the front part of the eye. The Cornea is the most critical part of the eye when it comes to visual acuity. So a problem with the functioning of the cornea means permanently losing the most necessary part of the eye, which are the lenses.
Refractive surgery deals with adding those lenses back, by either replacing them or correcting existing problems with the cornea using various procedures that come under this unit.
At Global Eye Hospital, we are in the practice of using the best equipment and the best in grade when it comes to technology for treating problems with the cornea and refractive procedures. Some of the technology used at Global Eye Hospital with refractory processes involves –
- Custom Lasik
- Presbyopic Laser
- Implantable contact lens
- Permanent Contact Lens
At Global Eye Hospital, we have all our refractive procedures designed around the idea of correcting the vision problems that are caused due to damage to the cornea. Patients come in with issues that have been slowly taking over a healthy cornea for years, like Myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. These are acute vision problems, which could be treated using, particular laser beams that help in reshaping the cornea, a procedure that is primarily known as refractive.
Our doctors at Global Eye Hospital are highly qualified individuals as well as the support staff who are highly experienced people, dealing with eye care treatments for many years now. Our use of the best technology and accurate diagnostic equipment and the skilled technicians manning the same makes us the preferred choice for patients when it comes to refractive procedures or solutions to cornea related problems.
