Corneal transplantation is an advanced procedure that can save your eyesight from the effects caused by serious corneal disorders, diseases, or injuries. Dr. Yamagata performs customized corneal transplant procedures designed to preserve and even improve your vision.
Corneal Collagen Crosslinking
Corneal collagen crosslinking is designed to treat patients with:
- Ectasia – a weakening of the cornea
- Keratoconus – a condition in which the cornea is unable to hold its round shape, typically requiring the use of hard contact lenses to correct
The procedure involves strengthening existing collagen in the cornea by adding the vitamin riboflavin. An ultraviolet light is then used to bond the collagen fibers and crosslink them. This can ultimately strengthen the cornea and stop the progression of ectasia, as well as improve conditions caused by keratoconus. Some patients have even experienced improved vision after treatment. Bliss Eye Associates is one of few practices to offer this state-of-the-art procedure.
Ocular Surface Reconstruction
There is a range of ocular surface disorders, from corneal conditions to damage on the outermost layer of the eye, which can be improved with procedures designed to reconstruct or restore the affected areas. Dr. Yamagata offers advanced treatment options that can improve vision, reduce symptoms, and diminish the risk of severe or total vision loss.
Dry Eye Syndrome is a condition that affects millions of people, and is often characterized by itching, burning, redness, light sensitivity, and other symptoms.

A pterygium is a growth that can develop on the cornea, causing symptoms ranging from eye irritation and excessive tearing to cosmetic changes and even total vision loss. Our experienced eye doctors can treat this condition with advanced eye drops and ointments, or surgery for more debilitating conditions.
In addition to comprehensive treatment for corneal conditions, Bliss Eye Associates offers state-of-the-art LASIK laser vision correction and other options to improve refractive errors in your vision. These innovative treatments can significantly enhance vision affected by nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, helping you reduce or even eliminate your dependence on corrective eyewear.
