Reduce Pain, Restore Vision & Improve Appearance of Corneas
Intralase Enabled Keratoplasty – Corneal Transplant Surgery
Corneal transplant surgery treats diseases that originate in the cornea by transplanting a cornea from a donor to you. This method of treating keratoconous is shown to be a safe, beneficial alternative to other methods. You can expect a faster recovery time and improved vision after surgery.
An innovative corneal transplantation procedure
Intralase Enabled Keratoplasty (IEK) is a laser assisted surgery for corneal transplantation. The use of the laser increases the precision of the procedure resulting in more favorable outcomes.
More Beneficial than standard surgical practices
Safe and Effective
IEK will result in less astigmatism caused by the surgery and will result in quicker recovery time. This effective and safe procedure has a rare chance of transplant failure and transplants are checked intensively for suitability to your eye.
Quicker Healing than alternative procedures
Fast Healing Time
Within two to three months after surgery, you will be able to see with limited functionality without the use of glasses or contacts. Their vision will strengthen over the following months, achieving 20/40 or better after six to seven months. This is a huge improvement from the alternative surgery which requires a twelve to eighteen month recovery period.
Optimal Corneal Transplantation Method
Improved Visual Outcome with Less Astigmatism
With the IEK surgery, ophthalmologists are able to increase visual outcomes that result in less surgery-induced astigmatism. This results in better vision for you now with fewer complications down the road.
