What’s New at Kelly Eye Center

Here at Kelly Eye Center there have been some new and exciting things happening. We are now offering two new procedures to our patients: iStent and AmbioDisk. Also, we have finished redecorating our Wake Forest office.

The iStent is a trabecular micro-bypass implant that is used to help treat mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma. The procedure is done in conjunction with cataract surgery. It works to lower the pressure in your eye by improving the outflow of fluid from the eye. The iStent implant is incredibly small, and you won’t be able to see or feel it once it’s in place. If you have both cataracts and open-angle glaucoma, ask our doctors if this may be a good option for you.

The AmbioDisk is an amniotic tissue graft that is used to treat disorders on the surface of the eyes. It is a very thin graft that is placed on the eye to help it heal. While the AmbioDisk is semi-opaque at first, it will become translucent. The AmbioDisk can be used to treat disorders such as non-healing epithelial defects, corneal erosions, and post-infectious keratitis, as well as others.

Lastly, if you are one of our patients who comes to the Wake Forest office, you will probably notice a few changes at your next visit. We have recently finished redecorating the office. Upon entering the office, you will notice new paint on the walls, new flooring, new upholstery on the chairs, and some new décor. We hope you like the changes as much as we do!
