Here is more information on the procedures:
Many patients with astigmatism are good candidates for LASIK, PRK/surface ablation, or cataract surgery with an astigmatism-correcting (toric) lens. Ask your surgeon which treatment is best for you.
Most patients choose a lens that focuses their vision in the distance and they use reading glasses to see the fine print. Some people choose more advanced correction with options that include lenses that correct astigmatism (toric), lenses that provide a monovision target with one eye focused far and the other focused for reading, or multifocal lenses that give a range of vision and thus reduce the need for reading glasses.
The primary treatment for Fuchs corneal dystrophy is corneal transplant. Previously, the only form of transplantation was full-thickness transplant of the entire cornea, or penetrating keratoplasty. This older transplant technique had a long recovery period and a significant risk of complications. Newer techniques of selective partial corneal transplant pioneered at the Devers eyes institute have become the standard treatment for Fuchs corneal dystrophy. These newer techniques that treat disorders, which include DSAEK and DMEK, are associated with much faster visual recovery, better visual acuity after surgery, and a lower risk of vision-threatening complications.
Keratoconus is a progressive degenerative disease in which the cornea becomes thinner and loses its shape. The cornea slowly becomes cone-shaped. Thus the name: KERATO (cornea) and KONUS (cone-shaped).
Dry eye is a multifactorial syndrome that affects the ocular surface, it can be caused by an imbalance in the tear production or the outflow system of the eye, it can have an evaporative component or a lack of quality tears. It can cause red eye, irritation, discomfort, inability to wear contact lenses, and even pain and blurry vision.
