Louisiana’s first prosthetic iris implant was performed today at AVALA by Dr. Satya Reddy with Louisiana Cornea Specialists. The CUSTOMFLEX® ARTIFICIALIRIS Veo Ophthalmics implant was used to treat disabling glare as a result of infection over 15 years ago.
This surgery has never been performed in Louisiana and we are proud to offer some of the most innovative healthcare solutions to our community and beyond! Dr. Reddy and AVALA are one of only two hospitals certified in Louisiana for this innovative procedure.
If you have an iris defect, cataracts, glaucoma, retinal or corneal disease and would like to schedule a physician appointment please call 833-AVALA4U (833-282-5248).
