Cornea collagen cross-linking
This treatment is effective to halt the progression of cornea ectasia (e.g. keratoconus, post LASIK ectasia, etc). At times, the treatment can be successful in improving cornea shape and vision.
Please see the Keratoconus section under Conditions to understand the rationale behind this treatment in keratoconus.
Refractive lens exchange
When natural crystalline lens of the eye is still clear, cataract surgery is called Refractive lens exchange.
Treatment is tailored to the individual to facilitate the best possible vision that will suit their lifestyle requirements. It is important to bear in mind that there is no perfect solution to match all lifestyle needs. During the consultation, the surgeon will help you pick an option that is most suitable for you.
Cataract is clouding of the natural crystalline lens inside the eye. This usually occurs with age, and results in gradual worsening of vision.
Symptoms can include clouding of vision and glare (particularly at night). Most people above the age of 60 years have some degree of cataract formation, but this can range from very mild to severe.
