Cornea Explained

The cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped outermost layer of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. It acts as a protective barrier and helps to focus light entering the eye onto the retina, which is responsible for vision. The cornea is composed of several layers of specialized cells and has no blood vessels, relying on the surrounding tears and fluids for nourishment. It plays a crucial role in maintaining clear vision and refracting light properly.

At Mosaddegh Eye Institute, we offer a range of Cornea Care Services to suit your specific needs.
Our services include:

 Instead of traditional full-thickness transplants (penetrating keratoplasty), newer procedures like Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) and Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) allow for selective replacement of only the diseased layers of the cornea.

Procedures like LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) and PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) utilize advanced laser technology to reshape the cornea and correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. 

In cases where traditional corneal transplantation is not feasible, artificial corneas or keratoprostheses may be used. 

 Research in the field of regenerative medicine aims to develop techniques for corneal tissue engineering and regeneration.

More on Cornea Care

Cornea care is an essential aspect of maintaining good eye health. Here are some additional points about cornea care:

1. Regular Eye Exams: Routine eye exams are important for monitoring the health of your cornea. An eye doctor can assess the condition of your cornea and detect any abnormalities or signs of disease.

2. Proper Contact Lens Use: If you wear contact lenses, it is crucial to follow proper hygiene and care instructions. This includes cleaning and disinfecting your lenses as recommended, avoiding wearing them for extended periods, and replacing them as directed by your eye care professional.

3. Protection from Injury: The cornea is susceptible to injury, so it is important to protect your eyes during activities that pose a risk. This may involve wearing protective eyewear, such as safety goggles or sports goggles, when participating in sports or engaging in activities that could result in eye trauma.

4. Avoiding Eye Irritants: Certain substances and environmental factors can irritate the cornea and lead to discomfort or damage. It is advisable to avoid exposure to smoke, dust, chemicals, and other irritants. If necessary, use protective eyewear or take appropriate measures to minimize exposure.

5. Treating Corneal Conditions: Various conditions can affect the cornea, such as corneal infections, corneal dystrophies, or corneal abrasions. Treatment options may include medications, eye drops, ointments, or in some cases, surgical interventions like corneal transplantation.

6. Maintaining Overall Eye Health: Taking care of your overall eye health can indirectly benefit the cornea. This includes maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating a balanced diet rich in nutrients, staying hydrated, getting regular exercise, and avoiding smoking.

In my life experienced it is rare that a doctor follows all facets of a patients health, even if it is in another field of health care. Her observation of the back of my eyes and alerting me that something was not right took me immediately to my internist and cardiac doctor’s. After an Angiogram I was immediately admitted to the Hospital by Dr Q. and Dr R. Obviously, they were pleased to have your observation and acted immediately. If Dr Mosaddegh had not recorder detailed records of my health for more than last ten years, she might not discovered my current condition at that moment and alerted me. At 7AM December 26,2009 I was wheeled into the operating room where Dr G. installed a new aorta valve so that I may have many more years of healthful life.

“She is the kindest doctor and easiest person to talk to. I understand what she says all the time. I’m very happy after the surgery and it was a successful surgery because I’m not wearing glasses, and I wore glasses for 40 years, and now I can see for miles. I’m the happiest person in the whole world and pleased with her care. You can’t find a person nicer and kinder than Dr. Mosaddegh.”

Bernice G.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Mosaddegh for many years. I have had a number of serious eye problems which Dr. Mosaddegh has treated and either cured or successfully managed. She is a consummately good ophthalmologist and surgeon and holds herself at the highest standards. I have referred family and friends over the years and their experience and opinions are the same as mine. Dr. Mosaddegh practices cutting edge medicine, cares deeply about her patients and is a very pleasant person to deal with.”

Blaine C.J.

“Dr. Mosaddegh performed successful cataract surgery on me and saved my life by revealing circulatory problems that caused me to seek the immediate attention of a cardiologist. Dr. Mosaddegh practices healthcare in the highest way with professional integrity, human kindness, and care. I am forever grateful.”

John Mc.

“I have been nearsighted most of my life. I have worn glasses, as well as contact lenses, both the hard and soft variety. My glasses were so thick that they looked like the bottom of a Coke bottle. I was introduced to Dr. Lillie Mosaddegh by Dr. Terry Baker in the late 1990’s. I asked him if he could perform the Laser treatment to correct my nearsightedness. Dr. Baker informed me that he had no idea how to perform the surgery as he was near retirement, but that he was bringing in a young eye surgeon that could help me. I met with Dr. Mosaddegh at her West Portal office, was given a battery of tests, and was informed that I was a candidate for Laser treatment. Dr. Mosaddegh performed the procedure in a matter of fact it was 22 seconds per eye.. I could see distances.. It was a miracle….and I still think it is a miracle. It has made a huge difference in my lifestyle.. I am very active.. If you have worn glasses and like to participate in physical activity, then you understand what a burden wearing glasses can be.”

Ken D.
