Corneal diseases can cause clouding and distortion of vision, and eventually blindness. There are many types of corneal diseases and infections such as bacterial, fungal and viral infections related to contact lenses, abrasions from trauma, and inflammation, all of which need early treatment for preservation of vision.
Ahuja Eye Centre network provides avenues for development of newer treatment modalities in collaboration with the industry and develops innovative surgical technologies to bring the best possible eye care to the patients. Research forms an integral part of the Corneal Services at Ahuja Eye Centre.
Ahuja Eye Centre is the nodal center for referrals for Corneal diseases like Keratoconus, Bullous Keratopathy, Corneal Dystrophy and Infectious Keratitis.
The latest techniques in Corneal Transplantation like Lamellar Keratoplasty (Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty and Endothelial Keratoplasty) are performed with good quality tissues. Penetrating keratoplasty can be done for patients who are not suitable for the above procedure. Corneal collagen cross-linking, which strengthens the cornea and prevents further damage is done to treat Keratoconus.
