Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL)

CXL, or corneal cross-linking, is a treatment used on patients with keratoconus. Keratoconus causes the cornea to become a cone-shape. This can cause extremely blurry vision and may eventually require a corneal transplant. Corneal cross-linking has been shown to help slow the progression of this disease and possibly eliminate the need for a corneal transplant.

Dry Eyes

Dry eye syndrome is a condition that can be extremely uncomfortable and can make it difficult to perform even the most basic tasks such as reading, working on a computer, or watching TV. This condition is usually caused by a lack of lipids (oil) in the eye. This is often the result of a blocked or dysfunctional gland. We offer LipiFlow®, an advanced treatment that uses thermal pulsation technology to relieve gland blockage and dry eye symptoms.

Corneal Transplant Surgery

Endothelial keratoplasty is more commonly referred to as a corneal transplant. However, unlike a traditional cornea transplant, endothelial keratoplasty involves the removal of only the inner, endothelial layer of the cornea. It can be used to treat conditions such as Fuchs’ corneal dystrophy, corneal edema, or failed corneal transplants.

Traditionally, presbyopia, which happens to all of us as we age, has always meant glasses for clear reading vision. It's a condition not even correctable by laser vision correction. Luckily, there is an option. Refractive lens exchange allows patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens.

Keratoconus describes a cornea that weakens as collagen fibers deteriorate, causing the cornea to adapt a cone-like shape. Keratoconus can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, glares, and decreased night vision. In its early stages, keratoconus may be treated with the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses.  Keratoconus is also one of the most common reasons for corneal transplant, and one of the most successful. call any of our offices and ask to speak to the Vision Correction Surgical Coordinator, or use the contact form below.
It's estimated that a million or more Americans have glaucoma and don't even know it.  People with glaucoma often do not experience any symptoms until they begin losing their peripheral vision. One of the scariest things about glaucoma is that it usually has no symptoms in the early stages, earning glaucoma the name "silent thief of sight." Anyone can be at risk, so it's important to have your vision regularly examined.
At Chicago Cornea Consultants, our doctors take great care in maintaining ocular health for our patients. However, a number of our patients voice concerns regarding soft lines and wrinkles around the eyes and other regions of the face. We have responded by introducing cosmetic procedures like BOTOX® Cosmetic through our Chicago practice.
This last decade has brought great advancements in intraocular lens implants. Before only a single vision lens was available after cataract surgery, now there are multiple options allowing people to see clearly without glasses after cataract surgery at all distances!

We encourage you to learn more about these advanced options and schedule a consultation to determine which lens is right for you.
