Collagen Cross-linking is a corneal strengthening procedure and breakthrough in the treatment of keratoconus. It is a non-invasive, non-incisional way to reshape the cornea without removing any tissue. The Avedro KXL system is the only FDA approved system for this procedure in the US and Dr. Dwarakanathan and Helix Eye Care are proud to be the only physician and facility in Northwest Indiana to provide this service to our patients. If you have been diagnosed with keratoconus or have developed severe astigmatism after LASIK, schedule an appointment with Dr. Dwarakanathan to be evaluated for this latest innovation in corneal care.
Micro-Incisional Glaucoma Surgery
Glaucoma surgery has undergone a revolution in the last 5 years with the introduction of Micro-Incisional Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS). MIGS procedures can often be done more quickly than traditional glaucoma surgery and through a smaller incision, leading to faster recovery and less trauma to the eye. Dr. Wang is the only fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist in northwest Indiana offering a full complement of MIGS procedures. MIGS procedures performed by Dr. Wang include: iStent, Ab-Interno Canaloplasty, Cypass, Kahook Double Blade Goniotomy, and Xen Gel Stent implants. Dr. Wang is also the only physician in northwest Indiana with the Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser with Micropulse, the latest diode laser that is appropriate for both very severe as well as more moderate glaucoma. If you have glaucoma and need better intraocular pressure control or want to consider options to reduce your need for medications, schedule an appointment with Dr. Wang today.
