The cornea is the clear front window of the eye. It covers the iris (the colored portion of the eye) and the round pupil. It bends, or refracts, light rays that focus on the retina in the back of the eye. Because there are no blood vessels in the cornea, it is normally clear and has a shiny surface. The cornea is extremely sensitive – there are more nerve endings in the cornea per area than anywhere else in the body. A misshapen or diseased cornea can interfere with vision and/or cause pain.

Some of the more common disorders of the cornea include
  • Corneal Abrasion
  • Corneal Erosion
  • Corneal Edema
  • Corneal Ulcers
  • Corneal Transplant
  • Fuchs’ Dystrophy
  • Bacterial Keratitis
  • Fungal Keratitis
  • Herpes Keratitis
  • Keratoconus
  • Pterygium and Pinguecula
