Corneal Procedures

Our two fellowship-trained corneal specialists perform a variety of corneal procedures. Some of the more common ones include:

Ophthalmologists smiling after a Cornea Transplant

Corneal Transplant (keratoplasty):

Removing a certain diameter of full-thickness corneal tissue and replacing with transplanted donor corneal tissue.


Removing the inner layers of diseased corneal tissue and replacing it with healthy donor tissue.

Lamellar Keratectomy:

Gently remove the top layer of the diseased corneal tissue away and smoothing the cornea.

Astigmatic Keratectomy:

Using a laser to correct astigmatism and reduce dependency on glasses or contact lenses.

Pterygium Surgery:

Removing fleshy tissue growth that grows over the cornea via a method called conjunctival autograft. This procedure can commonly reduce pterygium recurrences.
