Keratoconus treatment with Intacs, Collagen Cross-linking, Phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK) & Corneal Transplantation with LASER in Los Angeles
The cornea is the most important structure in our eyes. As such, even the most minor damage can result in repercussions to a person’s vision. Whether you are seeking treatment for corneal scarring or degenerative corneal conditions, Dr. Soroudi specializes in the medical and advanced surgical management of a variety of corneal procedures in Los Angeles, Huntington Park, and Encino.
Adopted from Dr. Soroudi’s Book: Advanced Refractive Surgery
Keratoconus is a relatively common eye condition that has been estimated to affect up to 1/2000 individuals worldwide. As its name implies, this condition refers to a “cone-shaped” cornea (kerato = cornea and conus = cone-shaped). As a result of this irregular shaped cornea, people with keratoconus get irregular astigmatism, and can’t focus images with glasses or regular contact lenses.
Dr. Soroudi specializes exclusively in performing KERATO-refractive surgical procedures that involve the Cornea (the clear, lucid tissue in front of our eyes). With thousands of successful corneal operations under his belt, Dr. Soroudi is considered one of the most experienced corneal surgeons in Los Angeles.
Dr. Ebbie Soroudi is one of only a handful of experienced eye surgeons in Los Angeles, CA who specialize in treating Keratoconus with intacs, which are currently the only FDA-approved treatment for this condition. He combines this revolutionary technology with PTK, and if necessary, Collagen Crosslinking to help restore each patient’s vision to its highest potential possible.
Our services for corneal surgery:
Intacs for Keratoconus
This procedure provides great hope for patients with keratoconus, and can not only improve their vision without any correction, but can help them avoid a transplant surgery altogether.
By utilizing light energy, Dr. Soroudi literally strengthens the bonds in the cornea, which improves vision and prevents further deterioration of the cornea overtime.
Phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK)
In addition to intacs, Dr. Soroudi specializes in performing Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) to relieve any residual astigmatism or myopia in patients with very severe disease, where intacs are not sufficient to treat their entire refractive error.
Each of these procedures is designed to treat issues with the cornea and improve your vision. The Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Center has helped thousands of patients receive the care they need to improve their vision, whether through the transplantation of the cornea, insertion of intacs, or removal of superficial tears to the cornea. Dr. Soroudi and the rest of our office are proud of the services we offer, and you can request a consultation to gain a better understanding of the procedures we can use to help you.
Common signs and symptoms of keratoconus are:
- Difficulty seeing even with your glasses or contacts
- Not qualifying for LASIK
- The need to wear hard (or Rigid Gas Permeable) contact lenses
- The need for a corneal transplant
