Corneal damage stemming from disease, infection, or injury can lead to vision loss; however, there are many safe and effective treatments available.

Keratoconus, a progressive disease of the cornea, can lead to vision loss or blindness as it gradually thins and changes the shape of the cornea.

Corneal cross-linking, or CXL, strengthens the collagen fibers within the cornea using riboflavin and UV light to slow the progression of keratoconus.

A cornea transplant can be performed to replaced damaged tissue in any of the five corneal layers, which can stop vision loss or even restore vision.

A superficial keratectomy treats the anterior (outer most) layer of the cornea to remove or smooth away scar tissue, calcium buildup, or other damage.


Phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) is a laser treatment that removes damaged corneal tissue lying deeper than the eye's epithelium (surface layer).

Prokera and AmnioGraft utilize human amniotic membrane from sterile Cesarean births to greatly aid in healing after corneal or ocular surface surgery.
