Corneal surgery and transplant procedures are constantly improving to be safer and help patients recover more quickly. Some of these corneal technologies now available at North Toronto Eye Care include:
- DSEK corneal transplants, which remove only part of the cornea
- IntraLase™ femtosecond laser (IntraLase-Enabled Keratoplasty, or IEK), which creates a more precise, safe transplant and can help people with cloudy corneas recover their vision more quickly and with better results.
- Innovative options for treatment of keratoconus (thinning of the central cornea); now we can help keratoconus patients prevent the condition’s progress with C3R Cross-Linking Technology, and possibly even avoid corneal transplants with Intacs.
