What Are Cornea Treatments?
The cornea is the transparent layer that goes over the top part of your eye. Its main goal is to help bend light so we can clearly see things. Many eye conditions can damage the topmost layer of the cornea (corneal epithelium), such as corneal abrasion, corneal infection, and keratitis. These types of problems can create severe pain and could impact your vision. At Bentz Eye Center, our cornea specialists offer innovative cornea treatments in West Palm Beach, FL. Please schedule an appointment at our eye care facility to receive additional information about eye abrasion treatment in West Palm Beach, FL.
What types of cornea treatments are offered?
Our team will start by performing a comprehensive exam to determine the type of corneal disease or condition. Often, our eye care specialists use eye drops with fluorescein dye to get a detailed view of the corneal damage and select the best treatment for your needs. Once we know what is causing your discomfort, we develop a treatment plan and provide prescribed eye drops, an eye patch, or ointment to help with the condition. For more complex cases, patients may need surgery of the cornea, like Lamellar keratectomy or corneal foreign body removal. You’ll receive details about your procedure options, and we can answer any questions at the time of your eye exam. Schedule an appointment with our cornea specialist today.
