Our Eye Specialist

Dr. Arti Singh is experienced in the various surgeries to correct diseases and disorders of the Cornea .

Cornea

The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that cover the iris, pupil & anterior chamber. The cornea with anterior chamber & lens, refract light, with the Cornea accounting for approximately two third of eye total optical power.

The cornea is the eyes outermost layer. It is the clear dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. Cornea is the highly organized group of cells & protein.

Some disease & disorder of the cornea are:

  • Conjunctivitis
  • Corneal Dystrophies
  • Dry Eye
  • Keratoconus
  • Corneal Infections
  • Pterygiun

Treatment & Management

Surgical procedures

Various refractive eye surgery techniques change the shape of cornea in order to reduce the need for corrective lenses or otherwise improve the refractive state of the eye. In many of the techniques used today, reshaping of the cornea is performed by photoablation using the excimer laser.

If the corneal stroma develops visually significant opacity, irregularity, or edema, a cornea of a deceased donor can be transplanted. Because there are no blood vessels in the cornea, there are also few problems with rejection of the new cornea. There are also synthetic corneas (Keratoprostheses) in development. Most are merely plastic inserts, but there also those composed of biocompatible synthetic material that encourage tissue ingrowth into the synthetic cornea, thereby promoting biointegration.

Other method, such as magnetic deformable membranes & optically coherent transcranial magnetic stimulation of the human retina are still in very early stages of research.

Non- Surgical Procedures

Orthokeratology is a method using specialized hard or rigid gas-permeable contact lenses to transiently reshape the cornea in order to improve the refractive state of eye or reduce the need for eyeglasses & contact lenses.

Diseases

Most people will have a problem with their eyes at some point in their lives. Most eye problems are not serious and do not require a doctor's care. However, certain eye diseases are serious and can result in blindness if left untreated.
