The UPMC Vision Institute's cornea services department diagnoses and treats corneal diseases and disorders including corneal abrasions, cataracts, infections, and dry eye.
Genetic corneal dystrophies, such as Fuch’s dystrophy or keratoconus, can lead to distorted, cloudy, or reduced vision and, in some cases, blindness. When a diseased cornea cannot be treated with corrective lenses or medications, surgery may be necessary. The UPMC Vision Institute uses advanced laser technology and surgical techniques, such as phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) or corneal transplantation, to restore an individual’s visual clarity and enhance his or her quality of life.
