If You Have a Corneal Disorder, You Are Not Alone

Keratoconus affects 1 in 2,000 people in the US

Not sure which procedure is right for your needs? 

Your Doctor Might Recommend One of Several Procedures

Corneal Transplant

If you have a severely damaged cornea due to disease or injury, a corneal transplant may be the best way to resolve your concerns. 

Partial Corneal Transplant 

If you suffer from Fuch's Corneal Dystrophy, corneal edema, or endothelial dysfunction, a partial transplant may be sufficient. 

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking 

If you have an irregularly shaped cornea due to keratoconus, corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) may be the preferred treatment option.

Intacs® Corneal Implants

For patients who do not want to undergo a corneal transplant and have mild to moderate keratoconus, corneal implants may be an option.
