What is the Cornea?
The cornea is the front, dome-shaped, transparent part of the eye. The clarity and shape of the cornea are vital in its main role: focusing light onto the retina. There are a number of conditions that can affect the clarity and shape of the cornea, and in turn the quality of vision. Some of these conditions include: Keratoconus, Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy, scarring, and infections.
