Cataract is becoming increasingly more common, especially among older people. It causes cloudy vision and the appearance of halo-like glow around cars headlights or lamp posts. Check out our Cataract page and read more about treatment options.
Reshaping the cornea with laser is the latest technology used to correct errors of refraction permanently and eliminate dependency on eyewear. Check out our LASIK surgery page and find out more on how LASIK can change the quality of your life.
Errors of refraction
Blurry vision, headaches, and eye strain and fatigue are all symptoms of an error of refraction. Explore the different types of refractive errors at our Errors of Refraction page and learn how we can help you correct them.
Inserting a man-made lens between the cornea and the iris is another technique to correct an error of refraction. Visit our Phakic IOL page and explore the advantages of lens implantation surgery.
Corneal transplantation (keratoplasty)
Removing and replacing all or a part of damaged cornea can be used to restore or significantly improve the visual function and treat severe infection or damage. Visit our Corneal Transplantation page and learn more about the surgery.
Keratoconus is a condition where there is progressive thinning of the cornea that results in it taking an abnormal conical shape which may affect vision. Learn more about keratoconus and its treatments.
