The cornea is the transparent outermost layer of the eye where images are gathered and focused upon. The cornea allows the image you are looking at to be carried in the form of light waves into the interior of your eye. Because of its location and dome-shaped surface, the cornea is prone to considerable abuse from the outside world that can ultimately damage and distort its shape.
There are several corneal diseases and disorders that can affect your vision including keratoconus, bullous keratopathy, and corneal scarring. You can count on Vistar Eye Center’s cornea surgeons to work closely with you, the patient, to discuss your individual needs and work through the best treatment options.
