Corneal & External Disease
The cornea is the clear tissue that sits in front of the iris and pupil.
It protects the eye and allows light to enter. We are experts in diagnosing and treating diseases of this part of the eye.
Corneal disease refers to the problems that can affect the cornea. The diseases and conditions we treat include:
- Dry Eye Disease
- Corneal dystrophies (a group of diseases that often run-in families and get worse over time)
- Corneal infections
- Keratoconus (a thinning of the cornea)
- Herpetic Disease of the Eye
- Pterygium (a pie-shaped bump on the eyeball that can invade the cornea)
