Cornea, Cataract and Refractive Surgery - W.K. Kellogg Eye Center
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, including descemet stripping, endothelial keratoplasty, and femtosecond laser assisted keratoplasty. 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.
