Cornea, Cataract and Refractive Surgery - W.K. Kellogg Eye Center
Director: Alan Sugar, M.D.
Our Cornea and External Disease Service evaluates and treats diseases of the cornea and epithelium, including dystrophies, infections, corneal swelling, dry eyes and injuries. A major part of this service is corneal transplantation. Our Cornea Service faculty also perform cataract and refractive surgery.
Refractive surgery at Kellogg includes LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), with the new IntraLase FS, an ultrafast laser system known to reduce flap complications. Kellogg also offers wavefront LASIK, which detects aberrations by creating a three-dimensional map of the eye.Other options in refractive surgery include LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis), PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), CK (conductive keratoplasty) and Intacs corneal rings. Conductive keratoplasty uses low-level radiofrequency energy to reshape the cornea to correct hyperopia. Corneal rings are surgically implanted clear plastic rings that flatten the cornea to reduce or eliminate myopia; the rings are removable.
