Cornea Treatment

The cornea is the outermost layer of the eye. The cornea is also the clear part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil and anterior chamber. Just like a clear window, the cornea is critical in maintaining a sharp focus on objects, playing a role in overall focusing power. The inside layer of cornea, the endothelium, has a finite number of cells that maintain clarity and do not regenerate.

The cornea procedures performed at Mann Eye Institute are:

  • Corneal Crosslinking
  • Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK)
  • Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK, PKP)
  • Lamellar/Tectonic Keratoplasty
  • Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK)
  • Endothelial Failure
  • Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK)
