Cornelius has a special Interest in Refractive surgery and Corneal Disease.
Refractive surgery include phakic intra-ocular lens implants, PRK procedures, Femto-lasik as well as ReLex SMILE procedures. The Refractive laser surgeries are performed with the VisuMax Femtosecond laser system, combined with the MEL90 Excimer platform.
The Femtosecond laser system is also used in the accurate placing of intra-stromal corneal ring segments to improve corneal topography in keratoconus patients.
Modern corneal graft procedures address the diseased part of the cornea. Endothelial keratoplasty (EK) is performed for endothelial disease and Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is performed for stromal disease. Occasionally a full thickness corneal graft (PKP) is indicated when endothelial and stromal disease co-exist.
All patients should undergo an eye examination every couple of years to exclude any visually threatening disorders and to diagnose eye diseases which could go undetected . At the time of the appointment, Dr Cornelius will perform a comprehensive eye examination and advise you accordingly. Please feel free to contact our dedicated staff on (012) 343 8035 to arrange your appointment or request an appointment via the appointment request feature.
