The cornea of your eye plays an essential role in your vision, focusing the entry of light into the eye and significantly contributing to the eye’s ability to focus. In addition, it acts as a shield, protecting your eye from germs and other harmful matter.
Smooth and clear, the cornea is surprisingly strong and durable. Yet, there are many medical conditions that affect the cornea that require highly specialized care.
