Comprehensive Eye Care Solutions for management of Cornea related conditions

Cornea is a very significant portion of the eye and any condition if untreated can lead to permanent vision loss or damage to the eye. Spectra Eye has the most advanced diagnostic set up in Delhi for eye care needs. We offer affordable and efficient Keratoconus treatment in Delhi from leading eye specialists.

What does cornea do?

The cornea is described as the clear and translucent film of the eye that covers the front surface of our eyes. This portion of the eye is also reasonably strong and robust. The tear production and tear fluid from the eyes offers the cornea the protection from bacterial infections, germs and viruses. It serves a vital function in terms of the transmission of light into the eyes. This portion of the eye is often labeled as the lens of a camera. Thus, the cornea can be described as the eye's most outer lens in the human eye. From this viewpoint, its role is to let light replicating from other objects into the eyes. It takes this light and like a window, it lets it in and emphasizes this light. The cornea also plays a role as a natural filter because of the fact that it filters out some of the harmful U.V rays and blue rays of the sun. Thus, the role of the cornea is protective. This portion of the eyes functions like the lens of a camera. This is owing to the fact that it plays an essential role in focusing incoming light into the eyes and focuses this light onto the retina. This image is then converted and transferred via electrical impulses to the optic nerve where the brain interprets this image as the vision that we see.

Intra corneal Ring Segments (KeraRings)

Semi soft gas permeable lenses are the backbone of treatment for eyes with keratoconus. This is because such eyes have huge cylindrical errors which cannot be rectified using just glasses. These will be required even after C3R treatment (because C3R only aids to prevent the further development of keratoconus). However, in patients who have advanced keratoconus, the substantial cylindrical error does not permit even a contact lens fitting. Also, these lenses can cause irritation and at times septicity and redness in eyes. To lessen these large cylindrical errors seen in keratoconus, there is a new therapy available; Intacs or KeraRings are specially designed plastic ring segments, which when implanted in the cornea, considerably decrease the cylindrical error and improve the quality of vision. At Spectra Eye, we have pioneered this treatment in North India. Also as an additional improvement in this therapy, we use state-of-the-art technology (Intralase laser technology) to make the process almost pain-free and very safe for the patient. The Intralase femtosecond laser creates a precise tunnel for the corneal ring segments to be implanted. This makes the process simpler and safer and produces more pleasing outcomes for the patient.


Combination Therapy

Collagen crosslinking might be used in combination with INTACS or toric phalic IOLs. This combination methodology not only seeks to halt the progression of keratoconus but also offers a marvellous improvement in the quality of vision of the keratoconus patient.


Corneal Transplants

Progressive cases of keratoconus might necessitate corneal transplantation. Spectra Eye is an authorized corneal transplantation centre and boasts of a crew of knowledgeable corneal specialists trained from topnotch institutes across India and the world.


Cornea treatment

It is also acknowledged as corneal grafting and is a surgical process where an impaired or diseased cornea is interchanged by the donated corneal tissue (the graft) in its entirety (penetrating keratoplasty) or in part (lamellar keratoplasty). The graft has been confiscated from a recently expired individual with no known ailments or other factors that might affect the feasibility of the donated tissue or the health of the recipient.


Corneal topographic analysis

At Spectra Eye, we offer the newest corneal imaging modalities: the Pentacam Scheimpflug imaging system and the Orbscan slit scanning technology to map and analyze even the earliest cases of keratoconus.


Corneal collagen crosslinking

Corneal collagen crosslinking, CXL or C3R is a comparatively new kind of therapy for keratoconus patients. It encompasses treating the cornea with high concentrations of vitamin B (Riboflavin). This is followed by exposure to UV light. The treatment persuades cross linkage of corneal collagen fibers at the molecular level. This treatment is directed at arresting the further progression of keratoconus by strengthening the corneal architecture. It also helps in better contact lens fitting in these patients and decreases the need for major surgeries like corneal transplantation. We, at Spectra Eye, have been the forerunners in introducing this treatment and have treated several such patients so far.

Eye donation is an act of donating one’s eye cornea after his/her  death. Only corneal blinds can be benefitted through this process not other Blinds.
The cornea is the clear front surface of the eye. It lies directly in front of the iris and pupil, and it allows light to enter the eye.
Scarring of the cornea caused by a wide variety of infectious and inflammatory diseases leads to severe vision loss and blindness.
Eye donors could be of any age group or sex.
People who use spectacles, diabetics, patients with high blood pressure, asthma patients and those without communicable diseases can donate eyes.
Persons with AIDS, Hepatitis B and C, Rabies, Septicaemia, Acute leukemia (Blood cancer), Tetanus, Cholera, and infectious diseases like Meningitis and Encephalitis cannot donate eyes.
Generally 4–6 Hours is the apt time to donate eyes after Death. The procedure generally takes 20–30 minutes.
As soon as possible, but eyes can be removed up to 6 hours after death. However, in places where the climate is hot such as most parts of India, a shorter duration, preferably 2 to 4 hours after death is advisable.
No, eye banks have personnel who will come to the donor’s home or place of death and remove the eyes.
No, the removal of the eyes does not produce disfigurement nor interfere with the customary funeral arrangements.
  • Close the eye lids of the deceased
  • Switch off the fan
  • Raise the head of the deceased slightly by placing a pillow underneath
