Corneal diseases

Vision starts with a functional, clear cornea. Without a clear cornea the rest of the refractive media in the eye, like the lens, can not function properly. Correcting corneal irregularities and opacities can improve your vision.


Keratoconus is when the cornea thins out and bulges like a cone. Changing the shape of the cornea brings light rays out of focus. As a result, your vision is blurry and distorted, making daily tasks like reading or driving difficult.
