Phacoemulsification is the most common and modern cataract surgery technique performed. cataract surgery is used to restore vision in patients whose vision has become cloudy from cataract (clouding of the eye lens). In this procedure, the eye's internal lens is emulsified with an ultrasonic handpiece and aspirated from the eye. Then a foldable intra-ocular lens is injected into the eye.
PRK is a type of refractive surgery to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. PRK was the first type of laser eye surgery for vision correction and is the predecessor to the popular LASIK procedure. The good news is that PRK and LASIK surgery results are considered a permanent solution for defective vision due to Refractive Error and most people find that their improved eyesight lasts forever, however, there are a few things that can impact the long-term effects of your vision correction surgery need to be considered.
RD is a disorder of the eye in which the sensory retina separates from the RPE, the layer underneath, symptoms include an increase in the number of floaters, flashes of light, and worsening of the vision. This is described as a curtain over the field of vision. Without surgical treatment, permanent loss of vision occurs.
Corneal blindness is the third major cause of blindness after cataract and refractive errors. Corneal transplant (also known as corneal grafting) is a surgical procedure where a damaged or diseased cornea is replaced by donated corneal tissue, when the entire cornea is replaced it is known as penetrating keratoplasty and when only a part of the cornea is replaced it is known as lamellar keratoplasty.
C3R is Corneal Collagen Cross-linking with Riboflavin. Ultraviolet light is used to promote increased cross-linking between collagen fibers within the cornea (the front transparent structure of the eye). Increasing the amount of cross-linking results in increased strength or rigidity of the cornea. Strengthening the cornea by cross-linking its building blocks (collagen) can prevent the progression of keratoconus and has also been reported to reverse partially the corneal steepening that has already taken place.
