What is a Corneal Disorder?

The cornea, the clear, front, outermost part of the eye, plays a crucial role in your visual health. It acts as a protective shield against dust and harmful materials, while also helping you focus. When the cornea is healthy, it resembles a dome, enabling clear vision. However, if the cornea becomes scarred or clouded, it can severely impact your ability to see clearly. It’s like looking through a dirty window. But worry not, because at Brimhall Eye, we’re here to help.

Common Corneal Disorders We Treat

Our experienced team regularly addresses a variety of corneal disorders, including:

Keratoconus is a condition where the cornea thins and bulges into a cone-like shape, causing distorted and blurry vision. There are several different treatments for keratoconus including specialized contact lenses. Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking is the only surgical treatment that can keep the disease from progressing. 

If you’re experiencing this frustrating condition, our knowledgeable team at Brimhall Eye is here to help diagnose and treat your Keratoconus with targeted precision.

Fuchs’ Dystrophy
Fuchs’ dystrophy is a progressive disorder affecting the corneal cells responsible for maintaining its clarity. Over time, Fuchs’ dystrophy can lead to vision impairment. Fuchs’ disorder can be hereditary and is sometimes characterized by blurry vision in the morning which gradually clears throughout the day. There are several treatments for Fuchs’ disorder beginning with observation, eye drops, and partial thickness corneal transplant surgery.

Rest assured, our compassionate and highly skilled experts are well-versed in managing and treating Fuchs’ dystrophy, providing you with the care you deserve.

Corneal Scratch
Even a small corneal scratch can cause significant discomfort and blurred vision. At Brimhall Eye, we understand the urgency of treating corneal scratches promptly. The most common treatment for a corneal abrasion is combining prescription antibiotic drops and a bandage contact lens. Most scratched eyes can be treated easily without any major treatments.

Our team will assess the severity of your scratch and provide the necessary care to ensure your cornea heals properly, bringing back your clear vision.

Regular eye exams are essential for maintaining optimal eye health and detecting potential issues early. We recommend that adults between the ages of 18 and 60 have a comprehensive eye exam every two years, or as recommended by their eye care provider. Individuals over 60 years old, or those with existing eye conditions, may require more frequent exams to closely monitor their eye health.

During an eye exam at Brimhall Eye, our knowledgeable and caring professionals will perform a series of tests to assess your vision and overall eye health. These tests may include a visual acuity test, a refraction test to determine your eyeglass prescription, a dilated eye exam to examine the inside of your eyes, and other specialized tests based on your individual needs. Rest assured, our team will guide you through each step and explain the purpose and results of each test.

Corneal disorders can present with symptoms such as blurry or distorted vision, sensitivity to light, eye redness, watering or itching, eye pain, or a feeling of something in the eye. If you experience any of these symptoms or have concerns about the health of your cornea, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our expert team at Brimhall Eye. We will conduct a thorough examination and discuss the best course of action for your specific needs.

Recovery time after corneal transplant surgery varies from person to person. It may take several months or even up to a year for complete healing and optimal visual outcomes. The initial healing process typically takes a few weeks, during which you may experience some discomfort and blurred vision. Our dedicated team at Brimhall Eye will provide detailed aftercare instructions and closely monitor your progress, ensuring you receive the necessary support throughout your recovery journey.
