Corneal Conditions

The cornea is the ‘window’ to the outside world.  It is a clear, curved structure with considerable strength. The function of the cornea is to allow transmission of light into the eye and help to focus the light near to the retina.

Any problems within the cornea can lead to symptoms of blur due to either a lack of transparency or due to an irregular shape. Pain can be associated with corneal disease.
