Corneal transplant procedures like penetrating keratoplasty, patch grafting and advanced surgeries like DALK, DSEK and keratoprosthesis are performed at our institute. To date, we have performed more than 1000+ corneal transplantations.
Corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin and INTACS surgeries are part of our armamentarium to treat Keratoconus.
Ocular surface diseases like chemical injury, severe dry eye, limbal stem cell deficiency are also treated with amniotic membrane transplantation and simple limbal epithelial transplantation (SLET).
Sutureless pterygium surgery with conjunctivo-limbal autograft with glue is also offered. This has the advantage of faster recovery after surgery and minimizes chances of recurrence after surgery.
We have Pentacam and OPD III which are top end corneal topographers and aberrometers to analyze the cornea. We also have the anterior segment OCT which has made the diagnosis and treatment planning of many corneal disorders were precise and simple.
