Ocular Surface Reconstruction in New York
Unlike your body’s surface skin coverage, the ocular surface of your eyes is constantly bathed by a film of tears and cleansed by your blinking eyelids. The ocular surface, which includes the eyelids, conjunctiva and cornea, forms a protective barrier against microorganisms.
The integrity of the ocular surface is very important to high-quality vision. There are many diseases and conditions that can affect the ocular surface. Most can be treated medically. Eye surgery intervention becomes necessary when medical management has failed. There are a variety of eyelid, conjunctival and corneal procedures that can be performed to improve function of the ocular surface.
