Cornea

Cornea specialists are highly specialized in their field, and greatly dedicated to the health and functioning of the cornea, the clear, dome-shaped surface that comprises the eye's outermost layer. While the clear nature of the cornea implies a lack of matter, in reality, this extremely organized collection of cells and proteins requires extraordinary surgical and therapeutic consideration. The skilled specialist's task of preserving vision is compounded by the potential cosmetic impact that procedures may have on this most visible part of a patient's eye.
