When it comes to corneal care, you’re in good hands with Dr. Mozayeni at Providence Eye & Laser Specialists. Not only is Dr. Mozayeni is a fellowship-trained cornea specialist, but he is also the most experienced eye doctor in the Charlotte metro region who provides all-laser, blade-free LASIK. Because laser vision correction is a procedure done on the cornea of the eye, Dr. Mozayeni’s training sets him apart from most other eye doctors by enabling him to provide a level of expertise unavailable elsewhere.
The cornea can be damaged by injury, disease, or hereditary conditions and as a result, it may become swollen or scarred. These scars may cause the cornea to scatter or distort light resulting in reduced vision. Many of these conditions can be treated with medication and/or surgery by our corneal care expert.
Corneal Care Before LASIK Surgery
One of the most common reasons for an unhealthy cornea is the overuse of contact lenses. At Providence Eye, we often see patients with contact lens-related corneal problems and can typically treat them with expert corneal care in preparation for LASIK eye surgery. Detecting subtle corneal problems and ensuring both eyes are in optimal condition before having LASIK is critical to a safe and successful procedure.
