The way you look plays an outsized role in how you feel. It can be argued that it isn’t the way it should be, but it’s undoubtedly he way it is. And let’s be honest: who doesn’t want to look younger? With collagen injections here at New York Cornea Consultants, you can restore that youthful look in an area that is most likely to reveal age, and that’s around your eyes.
If you’re not familiar with our Great Neck collagen, it’s a filler that is used to smooth out skin and reduce the visual drawbacks of things like crow’s feet and wrinkles. Have you ever noticed that when you wear sunglasses, people upgrade their opinion of how youthful you look. Well, now you can get that same result without covering your eyes up. Collagen is naturally produced by your body, and is in the second layer of skin, just beneath the surface. It acts to support the structural integrity of your skin. When you’re young, this means that your skin is resilient and flexible, and it snaps back into its normal look after you laugh, smile, frown, squint, or otherwise make facial expressions that put pressure around the eyes. Over time, though, loss of natural collagen leads to loss of skin elasticity. Thanks to our Great Neck collagen injections, you can return to a level of elasticity that is much more reminiscent of when you were young. And because of that, you will look younger, and consequentially feel younger. Don’t settle for creams containing collagen. They only work on the surface of your skin. Injections get beneath that first layer to really give you the effect that you desire. And because our eye doctor is skilled and experienced in performing this procedure, you can feel 100% confident.
If your faltering vision is also pared with extreme sensitivity to glare and light, there’s a chance that you’re actually suffering from more than just regular vision loss. It could be the sign of a serious eye disease known as keratoconus. We’ll get to what it is. But make it a priority to meet with a Great Neck eye specialist at New York Cornea Consultants.
Like any health issue, it’s important not to take it lightly by letting the hands of time tick by without any proper evaluations and treatment. What this disease basically results in is the thinning and bulging of the cornea into a cone-like shape. Once this happens light is deflected into the light-sensitive retina, resulting in distorted vision. The disease can afflict one or both eyes and it can develop as early as the teens or 20s. What causes this? There is no definitive answer. But recent research suggests that the weakening of the cornea might be correlated to a serious imbalance of enzymes which causes the cornea to become more vulnerable to oxidative damage from free radicals. Some common treatments for this disease include: custom soft contact lenses; corneal cross-linking; gas permeable contact lenses; hybrid contact lenses; scleral and semi-scleral lenses; intacs; topography-guided conductive keratoplasty; corneal transplant. For more information, or for treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out to a proper professional. You won’t meet better people for the job than at New York Cornea Consultants.

Your cornea is the clear part of your eye at the front of it. Light passes through your corneas, focusing on your retinas and allowing you to see. You cannot see properly without a well functioning cornea. If your corneas have become defective, it is the right time to call New York Cornea Consultants. Cornea transplants have a high rate of success. Put yourself in the hands of our Bayside ophthalmologist, Dr. Michael Ehrenhaus. You can feel confident in Dr. Mike’s extensive experience in cornea transplants. He has trained with some of the world’s leading authorities on corneal transplants and has been involved in the care of thousands of patients.

Among the reasons for a defective cornea can be keratoconus. This is a degenerative disease that causes the cornea to thin and lose its normal shape. Trauma or infections that may lead to corneal scaring are other possible causes for a malfunctioning cornea. In some cases, hereditary diseases such as lattice dystrophy and Fuchs’ dystrophy can also be responsible for a deterioration of the cornea. Regardless of what the cause is, our Bayside ophthalmologist can address the problem with a cornea transplant.
A full cornea transplant, which is also called a penetrating transplant, is one in which all of the cornea’s five layers a replaced. A full cornea transplant is not always needed, however. A partial, also called a lamellar transplant, replaces only some of the layers. As part of a consultation and preparation with our Bayside ophthalmologist, your options will be discussed in order to settle on which will be the right one for your circumstances.
The procedure itself can often be done using only a local anesthetic, in order to keep your eye from moving during the surgery. This will allow you to be awake throughout the process. Our Bayside ophthalmologist will remove your cornea using a special cutting instrument called a trephine. The cornea transplant will be carefully placed and then sewn using very thin stitches so that it is securely in position. Rest assured that Dr. Mike uses only state of the art equipment to ensure the best possible results. Successful cornea transplants will last at least 10 years.
