Complex Anterior Segment Disease
A specialist of complex anterior segment disease ophthalmology is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating complex conditions that affect the front part of the eye, including the cornea, iris, and lens. They address common pathologies such as corneal infections, corneal dystrophies, cataracts, and complex cases of anterior segment disorders. They utilize procedures like corneal transplantation, complex cataract surgery, anterior segment reconstruction, and medical therapies to manage and treat these conditions, aiming to alleviate symptoms associated with complex anterior segment diseases.
Corneal transplantation (Keratoplasty)
Corneal transplantation, or keratoplasty, is a surgical procedure where a damaged or diseased cornea is replaced with a healthy cornea from a donor to restore clear vision and improve corneal function.
Complex cataract surgery
Complex cataract surgery involves the removal of a cloudy lens (cataract) and its replacement with an artificial lens implant, addressing more challenging cases that may involve additional issues such as weak zonules, significant corneal abnormalities, or previous eye surgeries.
Anterior segment reconstruction
Anterior segment reconstruction refers to a variety of surgical techniques used to repair and reconstruct the structures of the front part of the eye, including the cornea, iris, and lens, to improve their function and restore vision.
