Keratoconus surgery

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease affecting the shape of the cornea and causing blurred vision. There are a range of options available to treat this condition, including Corneal Collagen Crosslinking, Kerarings and Phakic IOL. Find out more about the options here.

Pterygium surgery

A Pyerygium is a wedge-shaped growth of tissue on the eye, usually pink in colour. It does not usually require treatment unless it interferes with vision or becomes inflamed. In this case it can be removed using a technique called conjunctival autografting. Find out more here.

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking

This is a specific type of surgery for keratoconus, which combines the use of ultra-violet light with Riboflavin eye drops. Read more about the procedure here.

Keraring surgery

This is another treatment option for keratoconus. The procedure involves inserting a small device called a Keraring into the affected cornea to change and maintain its shape. Read more here.

Corneal transplant

This refers to the replacement of all or part of the cornea with a donor cornea. This may be necessary for a variety of reasons, from infection caused by contact lens use, to traumatic injuries. Read more about it here.
