The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer. It is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye and it helps to shield the rest of the eye from germs, dust, and other harmful matter. It also plays an important role in focusing your vision.If the cornea becomes damaged through disease, infection, or injury, the resulting scars can interfere with vision by blocking or distorting light as it enters the eye.
Common corneal issues include dry eyes, allergies, refractive errors, injuries, infections, pterygiums, and keratoconus.
At Atlantic Eye Institute, we are here to address your individual need with a team of board certified doctors and the latest technology. If you are experiencing corneal issues, schedule an exam to find out what treatment option best suits your condition.
