Ophthalmologists at Kamineni Hospitals offer comprehensive treatment in surgical and nonsurgical procedures
LASIK (Laser Eye Surgery or Laser Vision Correction)

PRK (Photorefractive keratectomy)
This is a minimally invasive method of reshaping the cornea, similar to LASIK. However, in this surgical procedure, the top layer of the cornea is gently removed and allowed to grow back on its own.
Visian ICL (Visian Implantable Collamer Lens)

It helps in reshaping and flattening the cornea without removing any corneal tissue. This procedure is performed under topical anaesthesia in the laser suite and the operating room.
IEK Corneal Transplant
Intralase enabled keratoplasty procedure involves using an Intralase femtosecond laser. It is done with the help of replacing the diseased or damaged cornea with healthy tissue from a donor cornea.
