This highly accurate laser method is for correcting conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
To be a candidate, women must be 18 years old and men 21.
Following are the characteristics of laser surgery.
• Duration is from 10 to 12 minutes.
• We use topical anesthesia (drops).
• Outpatient surgery.
The cornea is the transparent external lens at the front of the eye. A corneal transplantation is surgery to replace the opaque cornea with healthy tissue and is one of the most common of transplants.
Our experts will restore vision in your eyes.
Intacs, corneal inserts or implants are a minimally invasive surgical option used mainly for the treatment of keratoconus and helping prevent corneal transplantation.
Intacs are thin and transparent inserts that are placed on the periphery of the cornea, highly recommended in cases of mild myopia or in people with keratoconus, a degenerative disease of the cornea.
They carefully reshape the cornea and restore correct refraction to the eye without needing to remove tissue or manipulate the interior of the eyeball. Intacs are safe and highly effective.
This treatment is essentially surgical and consists of removing cataracts. Currently, it is one of the most modern and safe techniques, ensuring a very speedy recovery. The cataract is aspirated through a microincision (two millimeters) and replaced by an intraocular lens with almost immediate recovery of vision.
Cross-Linking is a method for treating keratoconus and consists of producing new molecular bonds to reinforce the corneal collagen that has been weakened by this disease.
It is an excellent therapeutic tool with optimum results that can be carried out in combination with intracorneal rings and/or phakic lenses. Our cornea and cataract unit team is expert in the treatment of keratoconus with these techniques.
