There are a number of diseases that can affect the health of your corneas and thus impact your vision, including keratoconus and corneal dystrophy.

Keratoconus is a degenerative corneal disease that affects the shape, thickness, and strength of the cornea and causes various eyesight issues.

At Focal Point Vision, we are pleased to be home to one of the only recognized corneal cross-linking technologies in the whole of San Antonio, TX!

Intacs are specialized devices that are implanted into the eye to modify the shape of the cornea and reverse the symptoms and signs of keratoconus.

DSEK (DSAEK) and DMEK are different types of corneal transplant techniques that address separate layers of the cornea to properly treat your issue.

A superficial keratectomy aims to smoothen or remove the outer layer of the cornea, also known as the epithelium, to treat certain eye conditions.

Individuals with certain corneal disorders could benefit from a full or partial cornea transplant, such as lamellar or penetrating keratoplasty.

Keratoprosthesis is typically saved for patients with very severe cornea disease or had some unsuccessful corneal transplants in the past.
