The cornea is the transparent curved structure on the outside of the eye; it is a person’s ‘window’ to the outside world. It allows transmission of light into the eye and helps to focus the light on to the retina- The sensitive layer of the eye.
Disease of the cornea commonly causes irritation/pain, watering or blurred vision
Conditions treated by clinicians in this service include keratoconus, corneal ulcers and infections, blepharitis, conjunctivitis and dry eyes.
