Diva eye institute has a robust history in treating corneal diseases. Now handling the cornea department is Dr Alisha Desai. She has completed her post-graduation in Aravind Eye Care System in Madurai which is the largest eye care provider in the world. She obtained a lot of clinical and surgical experience from this high volume eye care system.
She has also done a long tern fellowship in Cornea and Anterior segment from the reputed L. V Prasad Eye Institute. During her fellowship she discovered a medical treatment for a dreaded sight threatening eye infection. This infection could only be treated surgically and that too with poor results previously. Now this organism Pythium Insidiosum can be treated with medications and eye drops with much better results.
Evaluates shape and power of the corneal surface. The Pentacam, based on the Schiempflug photography is unique in that it provides invaluable information that other instruments are incapable of measuring.
also evaluates the complex shape of the cornea
Study of the corneal endothelium (cells that maintain corneal clarity)
Helps identify depth of corneal scarring/lesions on the cornea, corneal thickness, anterior chamber details
with high resolution slit lamp Photography for better evaluation and documentation of disease
With a complete Dry Eye Workup and customized management for this growing epidemic with the use of visual display screens
Keratoconus and post lasik ectasias involve thinning and increase in the curvature of the cornea. This change in the curvature causes reduced vision which cannot be corrected with glasses but can be coprrected with specialized lenses. This problem cannot be cured but atleast
Most commonly used in eyes with irregular corneas like in keratoconus, and after corneal transplant surgery.
This has become the world’s most frequently prescribed gas permeable contact lens for keratoconus.Unlike traditional contact lenses, the complex geometry built into every Rose K contact lens closely mimics the cone-like shape of the cornea for every stage of the condition.The result is a more comfortable fitting lens for patients and better sight (visual acuity).
this surgery being sutureless now has a very fast healing rate and reduces the chances of the pterygium coming back drastically
Corneal transplantations are performed at DIVA for a number of causes.
When the whole cornea is not diseased we may even replace the diseased layer only. This is called lamellar corneal transplant surgery. We perform all types of advanced lamellar corneal surgeries like DSAEK and DALK
for patients who have hazy corneas after chemical injuries, Thermal injuries , and other reasons for limbal stem cell deficiency
We perform this procedure to slow down disease process and provide more comfort to patients of SJS /TEN syndrome patient
In eyes with low visual potential and in peripheral cornea scars we offer Cosmetic contact lenses and also perform corneal tattooing for cosmesis
