Corneal Abrasion Treatments
The ophthalmologists of Vision Surgery Consultants specialize in the management of cornea conditions including corneal abrasion. The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped tissue of the iris, or the colored part of the eye. Certain conditions can lead to visual loss that is only treatable with a corneal transplantation. For conditions that cause scarring or opacification of multiple layers of the cornea, a full-thickness transplant or Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK) is often used. This is where the entire central cornea is removed and replaced with a cornea from a healthy donor. The donor is secured to the recipient cornea with multiple sutures.
If you have a corneal abrasion or may need cornea surgery, please make an appointment with the eye surgeons of Vision Surgery Consultants for a thorough evaluation.
