Dry Eye Syndrome

Modern infotainment gadgets have rapidly increased eye complications due to Dry Eyes. Dry eyes are often developed due to the relentless eye exposure to mobile and computer screens. These made the eyes lose their actual tear liquid and finally results in severely dry eye problems. The dry eye syndrome is identified in patients having red eyes and inflammation for a long period of time. The ignorance on taking dry eye medications leads to severe eye damage. Dry Eye complications generally occur in people crossing their adult stage. But these eye problems have become common in early adults. The chances of getting severe and permanent retina damage are possible if the dry eye complications are not been treated at the early stage of affection. We, The Eye Foundation strongly recommend to stay safe from dry eye syndrome complications by giving interim rest to your eyes from high brightness screens, maintaining your eyes tear by washing eyes. Patients experience dry eyes due to eye tiredness because of the high active time of eyes in sorting out the unnecessary needs of the individual.

Pterygium

Your eye may lose its actual vision, not due to cataracts or corneal damage, but due to the presence of pterygium infection. The pterygium eye infection is caused because of the sudden growth of tissue in your eye. Pterygium doesn’t involve serious complications and it is cured using eye drops. In some cases, if the tissue growth is uncontrolled by eye drops and other medications, it is recommended to go for surgery to completely remove the Pterygium.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus eye is a progressive condition characterized by weakening of the cornea wherein the cornea (the outer clear part of the eye) becomes “cone-shaped”, instead of being spherical. It is said to happen when the corneas are less “rigid”. Keratoconus transplant typically develops between the ages of 12 and 25 years and results in a progressive reduction in vision. Early cases can be treated with rigid contact lenses, while those who can’t tolerate contact lenses at all, may require a corneal transplant, and its cost is at an affordable price. Recently, a technique to arrest its progression has also been introduced. Corneal collagen cross-linking of the cornea with Riboflavin (C3R) is available to increase the rigidity of the cornea thus arresting its progression.

Corneal Scar

Corneal scars are usually formed following trauma or corneal infections and if it is dense enough can cause obscuration of vision. Depending on the density, location and thickness of scar, either a laser or corneal transplantation can be performed to remove the scar and restore vision.

Corneal Dystrophy

People experience gradual vision loss irrespective of external accidents. The cornea loses its strength and it makes the object image blur. This corneal damage is due to the genetic transmission of eye complications to the fellow family members. Corneal Dystrophy is unavoidable and it can be cured through proper medications. The patients have 90% of optic vision loss when the genetic corneal damage is not treated. Corneal Dystrophy can be completely cured at The Eye Foundation with Corneal Transplantation.

Corneal Infections

Optic Vision loss occurs due to corneal damage in the eyes. The medication for the cornea depends on the degree of infection and vision strength. Corneal infections mainly occur due to external factors like accidents, improper usage of contact lenses, bacterial and fungus growth in the eyes. Corneal infections can be cured completely and the treatment procedures depend on the decision made by the doctors.

Ocular Surface Disorders

A number of ocular surface disorders like ocular Steven Johnson syndrome, Chemical injuries, Ocular Cicatricial Pemphigoid & Neurotrophic Corneas require very specialized care. At the Eye Foundation we offer the entire gamut of complicated procedures for treating these difficult set of disorders ranging from Limbal stem cell transplantation, Amniotic membrane transplantation, Mucous membrane grafts and in some extreme cases replacing the entire cornea with an artificial carrier called Keratoprosthesis. Ocular Surface disease require urgent intervention and early diagnosis and treatment are necessary for restoration of vision.
