Keratoconus Surgical Complication Correction
Keratoconus complications are quite common as they may be a direct result of the keratoconus or of surgical intervention of the patient’s most recent surgeon.
Over nearly three decades of experience as a pioneer in developing advanced keratoconus correction techniques and award-winning inventions, Dr. Gulani has developed a proprietary protocol to enhance keratoconus complication surgery outcomes and also correct keratoconus complications successfully.
Following a detailed personal consultation with the patient along with advanced diagnostic testing he then classifies the complications into the following categories:
From The Keratoconus Itself:
An attempt from some surgeon to surgically correct the keratoconus induced vision deterioration:
As a master of ICS implant surgeries Dr. Gulani receives keratoconus surgery complication patients from all over the world and teaches these concepts to surgeons worldwide.
Dedicatedly approaching keratoconus complication patients with a goal to improve their vision Dr. Gulani classifies his approach into:
- Revision: i.e. remove the previous surgeon’s Intacs® or replace them with the correctly optimized size and pairing
- Compensatory: i.e. leave the previous surgeon’s Intacs® in place but compensating for the inadequate vision outcomes by applying LaZrPlastiqueTM or LenzOplastiqueTM techniques to enhance the patient’s vision
- Salvage: i.e. taking patients whose Intacs® surgeries have caused irreversible damage and salvaging their anatomy and vision by using his intricate corneal restorative surgical techniques
