Services Offered by the Department

The PGH Ophthalmology Department goes beyond routine eye care, offering a comprehensive suite of advanced procedures to address a variety of ophthalmic conditions.

Corneal Cross-Linking: This minimally invasive procedure strengthens a weakening cornea (keratoconus), preventing vision distortion and potentially reducing the need for corneal transplantation.

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK): PRK utilizes laser technology to reshape the cornea, correcting refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It serves as a safe and effective alternative to LASIK for patients with specific corneal profiles.

Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK): LASIK remains a popular option for refractive surgery. This procedure utilizes an excimer laser to reshape the cornea, offering patients improved visual acuity and freedom from glasses or contact lenses.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) for Glaucoma: SLT is a minimally invasive laser treatment specifically designed for open-angle glaucoma, the most common form of the disease. By targeting specific cells, SLT increases drainage of fluid from the eye and lowers intraocular pressure, offering an effective treatment option for patients not adequately controlled with medications.

Our unwavering commitment to excellence ensures each patient receives personalized care designed to achieve optimal visual outcomes and enhance their overall quality of life.
